    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      This medication was approved for use in humans, but has been successfully used to control blood sugar in dogs. Talk to your veterinarian to help you decide what type of insulin is best for your pet.

  • Q:

    I have a 10 pound Chihuahua that takes two shots each day of humulin n. Each dose is 0.03 mg. Can this pen be calibrated to inject this small of a dosage? Thank you!
    Asked on 6/7/2015 by teacher64 from Jasper, AL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Unfortunately, the pen does not dose that small. The smallest dose would be 1 unit. If you are looking for a smaller amount of Insulin, we do carry a 3ml vial as well that you would still be able to give that dose.

  • Q:

    how many doses in package?
    Asked on 4/16/2015 by jrock from Philadelphia, PA, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      It depends on the dosage you are giving. There is 3ml worth of medication in the pen and 10ml in the vial. Both are 100 units/ml, so you get 300 units in the pen and 1,000 units in the vial.

  • Q:

    I am having a VERY hard time administering insulin twice a day to my dog as he's fighting me the entire time. It's VERY stressful for him & me! How do the kwik-pens differ the syringe needles????
    Asked on 12/9/2014 by Liseola from Fort Myers, FL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Liseola,

      Insulin pens, such as Humulin N KwikPen, are a convenient way to dose and administer insulin. The pen allows you to dial in the insulin dose making it easier than syringing up the needed dose from an insulin vial. Pen needles will be needed to use the pen properly. The pen only allows for 1 unit increment dosing. If your pet gets, for example, 1.5 units the pen will not be able to dose this amount. I hope this is a viable option for your pet.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    Do I need a prescription to buy the kwik pen?  And do the pen needles cost?  How long will the Kwik pen last if I am giving 18 units twice a day?
    Asked on 11/24/2014 by Bill68 from West Palm Beach, FL, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Yes, this does require a prescription from the veterinarian. The pen has 100 units/mL and is 3mL so it would last you about 15 days. The pen needles do cost about $25-30.

  • Q:

    can humulin be put in smaller vials and frozen to extend expiration. we have dogs that require a very small volume and owners want to be able to use entire bottle?
    Asked on 7/16/2014 by valley2161 from Farmington, NM, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      Unfortunately, insulin is not recommended to be frozen. Ice crystals may form within the vial making the medication ineffective. After a Humulin vial is opened, it has a 31 day expiration date. Humulin pens have a 14 day expiration after opening. Human-labelled insulins (i.e. Humulin, Lantus) have 31 days or less for expiration date depending on the product. Animal insulin Vetsulin (labelled for dogs and cat) has a 42 days expiration and animal insulin prozinc (labelled for cat only) has an expiration date printed on the vial which can be much longer than 42 days. Sterile technique is essential with this product but it does have the benefits of having a long shelf life. These are two different insulins so their length of activity will be different.

      Thank you,

  • Q:

    is there any other insulin that is a little bit cheaper? i'm spending 125.00 at the moment and is breaking my bank account. also why is it that a dog cannot take a pill 
    Asked on 6/25/2014 by buddy215 from Staten Island, NY, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      There are cheaper insulin options available, but none of these are exactly the same as Humulin N. Vetsulin, an alternative insulin, is less expensive, but it is less concentrated and doesn’t give the same insulin levels as Humulin N. A different dose of Vetsulin would be required to cause the same effects as Humulin N. When dogs are diagnosed with diabetes, virtually all of them have insulin-dependent diabetes. What that means is when your dog eats a meal, the body cannot make insulin to take care of the sugars in the blood. Since insulin cannot be taken orally and the dog isn’t making enough insulin to take care of meals, the only option is to inject the insulin into the dog. Please talk to your veterinarian about insulin options.

  • Q:

    Can you ship Humalin N regular ground? 
    Asked on 4/21/2014 by BuddyMonster from California, United States

    1 answer

    • A:

      No, all insulins, like Humulin, require refrigeration and must be shipped overnight. When ordered, these products will trigger an automatic overnight shipping selection.

Comes in a small enough amount that I dont waste it. Insulin is only good for 31 days after opened and if there is still some in the bottle, you still have to throw it out, which is a waste of money. But with the 3ml bottle I will have none to minimal waste. With the 10 ml bottle I was throwing over 1/2 of it away, Local pharmacies dont carry the 3ml size to Vet Rx was my obvious choice. I am very happy with them, they even contacted my vet for the prescription and kept me update with emails.

We bought this based on another review stating that it was easy and quick for dogs who are not cooperating with injections. It did not work for us. The word "kwik" should not be used in the title of this product. Infact, it is a longer process than using a regular syringe. Directions state that it must be inserted subcutaneously for 5 seconds. Our dog will not hold still for the 5 seconds, rendering this product useless to us. I think it is a great idea for traveling with a diabetic pet, as it is all in one except for inserting the needle tip. This process should be explained in the directions on the website. If they were we missed them. We are out the cost of the pen and box of syringe tips.

      Love that they offer this product in the small 3 ml vials. We were paying $140 for the 10 ml vials and having to waste a lot of the insulin as our pet only used 10 units/day and half the vial would have to be thrown away because it expired. We appreciate having the availability.
