    DefaultAn Epi-Pen Costs (further to Zoe's bee sting)

    $67
    no medical insurance. However, I am at peace that if she goes into shock I'll be able to treat her.

    I am amazed at how much Px costs when there is no insurance.

    That seems a small price to pay if it saves her life.

    Do the epi-pens have an expiry date?

    Won't someone please feed me!

    Yikes! That's pricey, but worth every cent! I think an EpiPen runs about $100 CDN without insurance here.

    So, what's the scoop?? What did your vet say?

    The human ones are 2 years, I get one every year and keep them stashed in different places.

    Wow that's pricey!

    I hope she never will get a reaction again. That was scary.

    yes, a very small price to pay her her life. I am so happy and it gives me much relief that I have it, just in case.

    The ex/date is one year.. Do not refrigerate, but not to store in the sun.. Pharmacist advised to keep it in my handbag

    Felicia: vet said only to administer if she goes into shock. It is not benadryl.
    If her face swells, I'm to administer benadryl tabs, and if she goes into shock, then I administer the pen.

    This pen is very simple to administer. It's the same as for humans. The main thing is for me not to poke myself.

    thanks all for your concerns and interest in this...

    That's not so bad for the sake of peace of mind. Felicia is right, over here an epi-pen is just a little over $100 Canadian. What's the dose on Zoe's?
