What is Novolin N?

Novolin N insulin is used to control high blood sugar of pets with diabetes mellitus. It is structurally identical to insulin that is created in the pancreas. It works the same as Humulin N, except Novolin N has a shorter acting time of 12 hours instead of 24. Novolin N is an intermediate-acting insulin and starts working 1 1/2 hours after injection. Each vial contains 100 units/mL of insulin. It's used with U-100 syringes (sold separately). Unopened vials of Novolin N should be stored in the refrigerator and can be used until the expiration date on the box of insulin. Once the vial of Novolin N is opened it may be kept at room temperature (below 77 °) or in the refrigerator. In either case, the opened vial should be discarded after 42 days.

To ensure proper temperature, Novolin N requires overnight shipping at an additional cost.

For: Dogs and Cats
 
Benefits:
Controls your pet's high blood sugar
Starts working in 1 1/2 hours
Comparable to Humulin N

How it works:
Insulin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the pancreas. When the body does not produce enough insulin, or when the insulin produced is not effective, it results in diabetes mellitus. Novolin N controls high blood sugar in dogs with diabetes.

Cautions:
Do not switch from one type insulin to another unless under the direction of a veterinarian. Changing from one insulin to another may require an adjustment in the dose. Insulin requires refrigeration. Overnight shipping is required and additional shipping charges are applicable. Pet owners should monitor pets for signs of hypoglycemia as well as signs of unregulated diabetes mellitus upon switching insulin.

More Information:
 
Brand Name
Novolin N
What is Novolin N used for:
It controls high blood sugar associated with diabetes mellitus.

Availability:
Novolin N is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How should Novolin N be used:
Administer Novolin N as prescribed by your veterinarian.

What are the side effects:
Side effects when using Novolin N insulin may include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) with symptoms of weakness, tiredness, shaking, seizures or coma. Pets may appear immobile. Hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) has symptoms of weakness, trembling, unresponsiveness, seizures, coma, and death. Allergic reaction may occur. Signs of an allergic reaction may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, or coma.

What special precautions are there:
Do not switch from one type insulin to another unless under the direction of a veterinarian. Changing from one insulin to another may require an adjustment in the dose. This medication should not be used in animals allergic to it. It is important to use the correct insulin syringe. 100 units/ml insulin (U-100) requires a 100 unit syringe. Novolin N insulin suspension should be milky or cloudy and should not be shaken but the bottle should be rolled between the hands 10 times to mix the vial. If a dose is missed, give the medication as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one that was missed and give the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give two doses at once. It is potentially less harmful to your pet to give too little insulin, than to give too much. Tell your veterinarian what other medications your pet is on before using.

In the event of an overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room. Overdose of Novolin N insulin causes hypoglycemia. Symptoms include weakness, trembling, unresponsiveness, seizures, coma, and death. Feed the pet a normal meal or place a small amount of sugar water or Karo syrup on the gums. Do not treat an unresponsive pet.

How should I store this product:
Keep all unopened vials in the refrigerator. Do not freeze. Vials in use can be stored at room temperature below 77° for up to 6 weeks.
Directions:
Novolin N insulin helps control high blood sugar levels in diabetic pets.
Available in 10 mL vials containing 100 units per mL.
Novolin N should be given using a U-100 insulin syringe only. Use of an insulin syringe other than a U-100 syringe will result in incorrect dosing.
Tip: Just prior to use, the vial should be mixed by gently rolling the vial between the palms of your hands 10 times.
Dosage:
Pet Weight Dosage
Dogs/Cats: All weights The dose of Novolin N insulin is determined by means of a blood glucose test. Doses can vary. In some instances Novolin N insulin may be given once a day and in other instances twice a day. Consult your veterinarian for correct dosing.
Horses:
Storage: Unopened vials of Novolin N should be stored in the refrigerator and can be used until the expiration date on the box of insulin. Once the vial of Novolin N is opened it may be kept at room temperature (below 77 degrees) or in the refrigerator. In either case, the opened vial should be discarded after 42 days.

Answer: 
No, dogs can not use human monitors: their blood makeup (lots of tech info) isn't the same as humans (ours is larger in the components used to make the monitors work)... Human URINE strips with the glucose AND ketone tests CAN BE USED (I use them for my dog).. U can SOMETIMES use human insulin too, but you need to work with your vet on this one... It can be tricky switching insulin and sometimes issued can happen.
