What is Novolin Insulin by Novo Nordisk for Dogs and Cats?

- The insulin in Novolin R is called Regular insulin. Regular insulin is a regular or short-acting insulin.
- The insulin in Novolin N is called NPH insulin. NPH insulin is an intermediate-acting insulin.

Q & A
We have been keeping it refrigerated, but I accidentally left it out on the counter overnight. Is it safe to use fur this morning's injection? I put it in the fridge just now and he is due for his injection in an hour.?
My dog is on Novolin N and I keep it in the refrigerator after it has been opened is this okay!??
Unopened bottles of Novolin should be kept refrigerated 36° to 46° F (2° to 8° C). Once you have opened the bottle, It should be kept at room temperature below 77°F (25°C) for up to 6 weeks (42 days), and kept away from direct heat or light. Do not refrigerate in-use Novolin® N products. You may consider speaking with your veterinarian and seek their advice regarding your dog's insulin regimen.Verified Answer
How do u convert human insulin to dog insulin using a U-40 insulin syringe 0.5ml using Novolin 10ml 100units/ml?
It is highly recommended that you use U-40 syringes with U-40 insulin, and U-100 syringes with U-100 insulin, to avoid confusion. Using a U-100 insulin (such as Novolin 100 units/mL) with a U-40 syringe could potentially lead to overdosing your dog. Insulin overdoses can result in various degrees of hypoglycemia, which may be serious. Please reach out to your veterinarian if you need to change your syringes to match your insulin.Verified Answer

Novolin N is a u-100 insulin, which means that there are 100 units of insulin per milliliter. Therefore, u-100 syringes are needed in order to administer the correct dosage of Novolin N.

Can Novolin N be used longer than 42 days if, after opening, it is kept refrigerated rather than left at room temperature??
The manufacturer of Novolin N recommends that the product should be discarded 42 days after initial use. The manufacturer also recommends Novolin N vials that are in-use should be stored at room temperature, below 77 degrees fahrenheit after initial use and protected from light. Unopened vials of Novolin N can be used up until the expiration date on the label if stored in the refrigerator.Verified Answer
Does the U40 and U100 refer to the strength of the insulin? Is U110 more than twice as strong as U40??
Insulin is measured in units, and the strength of insulin is expressed as U-40 and U-100. For example: U-100 means that there are 100 units of insulin per milliliter (ml) of liquid. There are certain types of veterinary insulin that are U-40. It is important to always match the syringe to the insulin. For example, U-40 insulin should always be measured in a U-40 syringe while U-100 insulin should always be measured in a U-100 syringe.Verified Answer

My dog is Diabetic and our vet put him on 12 units of Novolin N twice a day. After 6 months of injections he has began drinking a lot of water (so we monitor his intake) but now he is peeing often and everywhere. Is this normal and what can we do??

My dog is on Novolin N (100 units) 10 ml. I give her 6 units every 12 hours. My question is the syringe. I am using a 3/10 ml/cc syringe. Is this the correct syringe for this insulin??
Administration of Novolin N should be done with U100 syringes to ensure your pet gets the correct dosage. The 3/10 ml/cc (U100) syringe is the best syringe for you to be using for your dog. Overall you want to use the smallest volume of syringe in order to make the dose easier to measure. The 3/10 ml/cc is the smallest insulin syringes are available in.Verified Answer
