Any difference in Novolin N and Humulin N when treating feline diabetes?
My 11 year old cat has been on insulin (Novolin N) for a couple years now. He has responded well to the Novolin. When I went to pick up a new bottle, the pharmacist informed me that they are not carrying the Novolin N anymore. They switched to carrying the Humulin N.

My 11 year old cat has been on insulin (Novolin N) for a couple years now. He has responded well to the Novolin. When I went to pick up a new bottle, the pharmacist informed me that they are not carrying the Novolin N anymore. They switched to carrying the Humulin N. He assured me that it is the same thing, but I can't help but be uneasy about the change. Has anyone used both? Did you see any difference in response to the two? Or am I simply worrying for no reason. My fella means the world to me and I don't want to jeopardize his health. Answered by Sharell Laine 1 year ago.

They are both synthetic forms of human insulin. Chemically speaking, if your cat did well on one brand, he should do fine on the other since they are both made of the same thing. With that being said, some people prefer to buy 'Advil' over ibuprofen because they think it works better. Same drug, different effect? Or mind over matter? Your cat should do just fine, but monitor tangible evidence so you don't over-think yourself into believing the new insulin isn't working. Measuring his water intake is a good start. (Use a measuring cup to fill his bowl in the morning, then at night (or the next morning) pour the water back into the measuring cup to see how much he drank over a 12 or 24 hour period. Write down your results. Hope this helps. Answered by Augustus Sainz 1 year ago.

My Billy was only on Humulin N so I don't have an answer for your specific question. I would like to add to the first answer about writing down results. If you haven't already done so, I would suggest the following. I would asume that since you are giving injections that you are home testing. When I was treating Billy. I would test him more that twice a day (two injections per day). I charted my results on paper, then transferred them to an Excel spreadsheet which I then in turn created a chart from. This chart let me know the high's and low's of Billy's BG's throughout the day. It seems like a lot of work, but once set up, all you have to do is enter the new reading, time and date. I kid you not, after a little over a month of this and removing Billy (slowly) from dry food to canned food (be careful, some brands are just plain "crap"), he went in to remission and remained in remission until his ultimate passing a few years later from cancer. Billy was also 11 when he became diabetic and died during his 14th year. If you don't know how to chart in Excel (or another program), please go to the feline diabetes website's forum. Many, many people know how to do this and can also offer a lot of help and support. Believe me, without them, I would have DKA'd Billy in the first few days of diagnosis. Veteranarians do not always know it all. People on the site I gave you have first hand experience every single day. I was able to teach my vet a little more, especially the importance of home testing, how bad dry food is and how important it is to NOT increase insulin quickly. I could go on and on. My experience turned positive and I pray yours does also. I've included a link to www.felinediabetes.com message board, but there are also many other areas that may help you.

You should look up ProZinc online. My cat has been on ProZinc for 7 months now. She does very well on it. She is also my little baby and means so much to me, so I do whatever I can for her. ProZinc is Human Insulin that has especially been manufactured for cats and is the ONLY insulin that has been approved by the FDA for feline diabetes. I do not know your budget or what you are paying, but it is about $100 for a 10 ml of insulin. My cat is on a very low dose of it, so it lasts us quite awhile. Answered by Bernarda Foran 1 year ago.
