My name is***** If the temperature in your house was less than 80 degrees the insulin should be fine. What type of insulin is it? Did you get it from the vet or from a pharmacy?

Customer: replied 27 days ago.
Novolin, from a pharmacy. House temp was around 68.
Expert:  Tamra Hunt replied 27 days ago.

It will be fine. The proteins in it start degrading when it gets over 80 degrees. You can use it as if it was in the fridge overnight.

I'm glad you checked though because some medications are not good if left out.

Give Goldie a hug from me! I love old yellow labs!

Any other questions?
