Hypurin Vet Protamine Zinc is a beef-based PZI insulin[2] made by CP Pharma[3].

It is approved only for veterinary use and for distribution within the UK -- from abroad you can only order the human-approved equivalent, Hypurin Bovine Protamine Zinc.

Insuvet Protamine Zinc is also 100% bovine, U100 PZI.

US-compounded BCP PZI and Summit's PZI U100 strength insulin is comparable to this one.

No Combining For PZI

Protamine Zinc PZI[4] insulin cannot be combined with other insulins, due to the amount of protamine in the insulin's formula[5][6].
