Default Re: Changing Insulin

Welcome to the forum.

Tell us more about your pup: breed, weight, other medical problems? Really anything you can share with us, we like to get to know "our" pups

Yes, many here use the $25 Nonolin-N from Walmart. You can also get the required U100 syringes there also. Some locations may require a prescription for the insulin / syringes, but most States don't.

Most home test the blood glucose using handheld monitors. Many use "human" meters which give acceptable readings, or there is a dog / cat meter (AlphaTrak) that is made for our fury-kids. there are videos on the main part of this website, and on YouTube to show how to home test.
