How Much Does Dog Insulin Cost?

Dog insulin is a specific formula of insulin that is given to dogs who suffer from diabetes.  Many people do not realize that diabetes not only affects humans but can affect dogs as well.  Dogs that are suffering from diabetes will exhibit frequent urinating and excessive thirst.  Another tell-tale sign of diabetes in a canine is weight loss.  A veterinarian will do some blood tests to check if your pet’s sugar is level is higher than the average that it should be.

If your dog is confirmed to have diabetes, it will then need to be given insulin injections to replace insulin which the dog’s pancreas can no longer produce in the right amount.  The number of shots and dosage of each will vary according to the size of your dog and the severity of  his condition.  For some dogs once a day is enough, while others may need two.  This will depend on the type of insulin which is given to your dog.  A veterinarian may choose from three different types of insulin to prescribe for a diabetic dog.

Taking care of a diabetic dog is quite costly considering that there is a special diet to be followed and test strips, insulin, needles that need to be bought on a regular basis.  However, with proper care, your diabetic canine can live a long, happy, and healthy life.
