I think your little bottle is a medicine bottle could have been veterinary related the top was probably rubber so a needle could push through and I agree the dog was worth the effort. I remember some like that in a gift shop I bought for my Mom when she was in a hospital when I was a child.

Love the milk-glass dog!

The small bottle was made by the Kimble Glass Company of Chicago, probably between c.1917-c.1920:

Kimble.jpg

Note that their later “K in elongated hexagon” used from 1947 onwards has the arms of the K touching the borders of the hexagon, whereas the earlier mark (like yours) does not. The dating comes from Toulouse’s 1971 reference publication on glass marks but isn’t supported by trademark registration evidence. Toulouse attributes it from “directories, Kimble history papers, and personal contact”. It does however tie in with Kimble being a known maker of “vials and prescription ware” at this time.

That's a very kind thing for you to say.

I would just add that there are a number of things a vial like that could have contained, but insulin isn't likely to be one of them if it dates to c.1917-c.1920.

The first use of insulin to treat diabetes in a human was in January 1922, commercial production didn't begin until May 1922, and it was a while before it became a routinely prescribed treatment.
