Lantus is a very long-acting insulin (lasting up to 24 hours in humans) that uses pH reactions to form micro-precipitates under the skin, creating a time-release action. Lantus lasts a full 12 hours in many cats, has a very gentle onset, a mild peak, and (some claim) less chance of triggering hypo or rebound than faster-acting insulins. Dogs, on the other hand, do not fare as well. Most dogs receive insulin injections twice a day. Using Lantus would at least double the number of needed daily injections because of the need for the faster-acting insulin at each meal.
Remember to pick up Syringes for use with your insulin.
