Default Re: Need help with Ben

I am so happy to hear that Ben is doing better!

Insulatard is the European name for Novolin NPH.

It sounds like you were already using U100 syringes, which is the right type for Insulatard. If you were using U100 syringes with Caninsulin, you were giving him less units than shown on the barrel of the syringe.

But all that matters is what you are doing now, since it's working fairly well!

It is a good idea to determine for certain what type of syringes you are using. I think the color coding is the same in the UK and Europe but I am not certain of that.
