Default Re: possibly diabetic maltese!?

Welcome to you and Ace!

Deep breaths, this is totally doable! EveryOne on this forum was once a newbie, and we all understand the range of emotions you are experiencing now. If you're already testing you'll be very comfortable with the injections in a surprisingly short time.

As you may have read in all of our threads most of us purchase our insulin at Walmart, as well as our syringes. Many vets prescribe Humulin which can be over $80 a bottle, Walmart's Humulin N is less than $25.
