What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Hypurin NPH is a longer intermediate-acting insulin for pets and is the pet insulin equivalent of Humulin N or Novolin N human insulin. It provides effective pet blood sugar control with dog diabetes or cat diabetes and is administered as an injection in the same way those two medications are for humans. Insulin isophane is standard as an intermediate-acting insulin, and when combined with insulin protamine pets using Hypurin NPH get extended blood glucose control after eating meals. The Hypurin isophane injection is prescribed for dogs more often than cats, and with 2x daily dosing it has a peak of 1.5 to 6 hours and duration of 4 to 10 hours.

You can buy Hypurin NPH for pets with a veterinarian’s prescription, and your best Hypurin NPH for pets price will be when you order medication online from us.


Standard insulin injection sites for pets are the loose skin just above the shoulder blades or around the flank or belly of the animal. Your veterinarian will discuss this with you and in most instances they will make sure you understand the injection site you should be using with your pet.

Always follow injection instructions as provided with your pet insulin and prescription, but standard guidelines for giving your pet an insulin injection are as follows:

Gently lift and pinch the skin into an inverted V shape. This may be referred to as a ‘skin tent’

Remove needle guard on pet insulin injection

Holding needle steady, pierce the skin tent with the needle but refrain from pushing it deeply into the skin. At this point you are only piercing the skin and holding the needle in place there

Now push down gently until the needle is just under the layer of subcutaneous fat. Pull back on the needle plunger gently, and if the syringe does not fill with blood then you can go ahead with the injection

Push the plunger down to inject the medication, making sure that all of the Hypurin isophane injection is delivered. Then withdraw the needle and replace the needle guard.


The active ingredients in Hypurin NPH are insulin isophane and insulin protamine


Inform your veterinarian if your dog or cat has any history of liver or kidney disease, insulin resistance, steroid or hormone therapy, or bleeding disorders / excessive bleeding before beginning on Hypurin NPH for pets

Pets that are pregnant may not be approved for using this medication

Changing exact injection site with each injection is advised to reduce the chance of lipodystrophy at injection site

Negative drug interactions between Hypurin NPH pet insulin and other Rx or OTC pet medications are possible, and it is always best to inform your veterinarian of all medications your pet is currently taking before getting a prescription and proceeding to buy Hypurin NPH for pets online
