Lantus or Levemir are longer lasting, and although they're more expensive than Caninsulin, they have higher rates of sending cats into remission

I think I will definitely be doing the bg test. Just have to figure out the monitor to use. Do u have any suggestions sugarcatmom? The water test would be too hard with 5 other animals male in the household and I'd hate to lock him up when he's not use to it for test that isn't as good.

If I want to put my baby on Lantus or Levemir is there a conversion chart that u know of or would I talk to the vet first?

I will definitely be checking out the site u recommended.

Thanks for all ur help. I'm am very grateful as I stumble thru this. The needles already made a big difference. He feels them and complains but not as bad.
