Calcium channel blocker overdose is encountered in human and veterinary medicine. At toxic levels these medications alter glucose metabolism, vascular tone, and cardiac function. Hyperinsulinemia/euglycemia therapy is a cardioprotective treatment used in human medicine, but rarely documented in veterinary medicine. This is the first report of HIET in a cat.
