Walgreens and CVS each want almost $75.00 for insulin. You can get the exact same brand and same size insulin at Sam's Club for under $25.00. I hope this may help someone save on their pet care costs.

Costco is another cheaper source as for awhile I had a cat on insulin. I have gotten other meds for the dogs and the cat cheaper at Costco too.

Boy, that is cheaper. I get a tiny bit off at CVS from AAA for close to $85 for 10cc of humulin-N. Do you need to take the script to Sam's or Costco? I don't belong to either, but that could be worth it. Don't even know where they are around me (suspect they aren't too close).

Wal-Mart pharmacies have the same pricing. I go to my local Wal-mart and pay under 25 for novalin-N.

Last time I went to Wal-mart I didn't need a script. I did take one the first time I went but the second time I just walked up to the counter and asked for it and they didn't even ask my name.

BTW- I have two dogs on insulin. (Mother & son) My vet is having a real hard time getting them under control. They both have Thyroid issues and we have been trying to get them regulated for the past three months. If they do not improve on the next glucose curve visit we are going to test for cushings as this is another thing that may be causing the problems.
