Product Details

Control your pets diabetes mellitus with Novolin N insulin. This type of insulin works the same as Humulin N insulin but is shorter acting (12 hours vs. 24 hours). Novolin N must be used with U-100 syringes only (sold separately).

What is Novolin N? This type of insulin is structurally identical to insulin that is produced in the pancreas. It has a shorter acting time (about 12 hours) than Humulin N insulin. It is an intermediate-acting insulin.

What are the benefits of Novolin N?

Works within 1 ½ hours of injection.

Formulated for: dogs and cats.

How is this medication given? Novolin N can be given once or twice daily as precisely directed by your veterinarian. Use U-100 syringes only. The dose of Novolin N is determined by blood glucose testing. The exact dose for your pet is individual based on his/her needs.Mix each vial gently by rolling it between your hands 10 times prior to administration. Novolin N is given by injection under the skin (subcutaneously). Your veterinarian will teach you how to give these injections properly.

How does this medication work? Novolin N helps to supplement the insulin that diabetic pets cannot produce on their own. Supplementing this hormone (insulin) helps to control your pets high blood sugar and clinical symptoms that are associated with diabetes mellitus.

What results can I expect? Your diabetic pets blood sugar (glucose) should return to normal once he/she starts to receive Novolin N. This may take some time so be patient. Once your pets blood glucose is under control, his/her symptoms of diabetes mellitus should be controlled. Your pet should then start to feel better.
