Update on Molly, diabetes supplies

February 5th, 2016 at 06:34 pm

Molly continues to go into the vet once a week to get a blood test. Her blood sugar is better, but still not down to normal, she gets 7 units of insulin, twice a day.
I got more needles from the vet. They would work for Molly's shots, but were a much bigger needle.
I did some research online and found the needles that we had been using, a smaller size (gauge 31. I found out that the bigger the gauge the smaller the needle)
The vet had sold us gage 29 needles.
I ordered the new needles and returned the others to the vet for a credit.
Her insulin is only good for 6 weeks after it is opened. The six weeks will be up on Feb. 15th. I looked online and found her insulin (novolin N) for $78 versus $140 at the pharmacy.
I was a little leery of ordering at first, but they assured me that it would come packed in dry ice.

I ordered Wed. afternoon and by 2 pm Thursday, it was delivered, cold, in dry ice. I did not even have to pay for overnight shipping.

Molly is worth a million dollars to me and I would spend it on her gladly. But if I can find a bargain on needles (They were $15 for a box of 100) and insulin, then I will go for the bargain as long as the quality and the brand names are the same.

Please think good thoughts for Molly, the sweetest Malta-poo ever born!
