Default Re: Switching from Vetsulin to NPH

Hi Marydog,

My Buddy changed from Caninsulin to NPH. He was on 4.8iu of Caninsulin (marker 12 in U100 syringe) and we used Caninsulin one day and the next day (normal injection time) gave 4iu of NPH.

Buddy had been diabetic for many years and we felt confident that we could check his reaction so didn't reduce the amount much to start. Many start 25% lower just to be safe. I'm not sure I agree stopping insulin for so long before starting NPH because those BG numbers will just keep rising and make it that much harder.

Make sure you have the right syringes for the insulin.

Jenny
