Feline insulin

Mike's Pet Care
I have a few client with dibetic cats that are still administering human derived insulin(NPH). Some vets will still try to prescribe Humulin N. Do NOT use this type of insulin as it has unpredicatable results in cats. Bovine (beef) insulin is most similar in molecular structure to feline insulin, and it is thought for this reason, to be most effective for these cats.
