I feel like my Vet wont give me information because it takes from him I kinda understand but he is suppose to save animals and if i cant afford I need his help.
We are in the process of changing insulin from Vetsulin to Novolin after two years. Many here had to change several years ago with Vetsulin became unavailable.

Here in Indiana, I needed a script for Novolin, I understand some places you don't.

Hang in there and welcome!
