Unfortunately, we cannot ship to the UK, as we are only licensed to ship within the United States, and can only take prescriptions from licensed United States veterinarians.
Lantus is longer acting than Humulin N, therefore a dose of Lantus is not the same as a dose of Humulin N. However, it is possible to switch from one to the other. Please discuss your concerns regarding cost and insulin alternatives with your cat's veterinarian.
If the Humulin N is unused, unpunctured and stored in the refrigerator, the
insulin is viable for as long as the manufacturer's labeled expiration
date. If the insulin vial is punctured, or kept at room temperature, the
insulin is only viable for 28 days.
Typically, our medications are shipped with at least one year expiration dates. We would make sure the insulin's expiration dates covered the total amount of time according to dose instructions before shipping an order.
