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.

Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9 years.
