Default Re: Questions about Humalog

Lantus has not proven to be a good fit for dogs. I would recommend starting with a NPH insulin. Many of us used the Novolin N from WalMart here in the states as it is about $24 a bottle. I donít know if that is an option. Keep in mind dogs process insulin differently than humans. Carbs are necessary in dog food to lengthen the action of insulin and keeping numbers steady.


If you like I can start you a thread for your dog. That way, you have a place to post without old unrelated posts appear.

How much does your dog weigh? Any history of pancreatitis or other medical issues? What are you feeding and how often?
