As raysaint suggested Nph has had good success in dogs and comparable with the action of vetsulin . You must know that you can get the nph brand under the relion name at Walmart for a big discount with syringes . You can get the 30 unit ones with half unit markings to fine tune adjustments using those half unit markings .

Usually doing a change from vetsulin to NPH the dose in units remains about the same . Most reduce a tad of the NPH at the beginning of the changeover . Remember you do have to change syringe type and dont use your vetsulin syringes with NPH

We have had other EPI dogs on the forum and did well .
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
