Description

Insulin Syringes/Needles U-40 29 Gauge x 0.5-in are prescribed by your vet for the injection of U-40 (40 units per ml) insulin in your diabetic pet. U-40 syringes are the syringe size that is recommended to use with ProZinc insulin. However, it’s important to note that more than one concentration of insulin exists, so be sure that the syringe used matches the type of insulin prescribed for your pet.

Uses

Syringes are primarily used to administer insulin to dogs and cats.

Precautions

Used sharps should be immediately placed in a sharps disposal container. FDA-cleared sharps containers are generally available through pharmacies, medical supply companies, health care providers and online. These containers are made of puncture-resistant plastic with leak-resistant sides and bottom. They also have a tight fitting, puncture-resistant lid. If an FDA-cleared container is not available a heavy-duty plastic household container, such as a laundry detergent container can be used as an alternative.

  • U40 Insulin Syringes

    By on

    I like these syringes. Easy to use. Good price. Wish they came in box of 100 and included a sharps container but I do like them better than other brands I've used. My dog does great with the twice daily injections.

  • Syringes Needed

    By on

    When we got our diabetic rescue, she came with insulin and syringes. When we ran out, had to find a place to purchase. Then we found Chewy. Good product and great shipping.

  • The best brand of Pet Insulin Syringes, yet!

    By on

    The graduations on these syringes, are easy to read. We are ordering them again. These were cheaper through Chewy than the Pharmacy at the food store, where we get our dog's insulin and diabetic supplies. I have every reason to believe we will be getting our supplies from chewy from now on, as long as the prescription is legible and up to date, there should not be a problem.

  • Not as sharp

    By on

    My dog switched from U-100 to U-40 insulin so I switched to these syringes. My dog is flinching more with these syringes than previously. Before he rarely flinched and now he is flinching with almost every shot so I feel they are not as sharp. The plunger is also slightly harder to pull back. I will be switching to a different brand when these run out.

  • great for Adequan

    By on

    I use these for Adequan shots for my dog and cat. The needle is thin and fragile so you have to be careful when inserting into the vile. I prefer these over the larger 25 gauge needles I used before. Cheaper than from the vet.

  • Saving 32%

    By on

    I have been using these identical syringes for my cat's diabetes for over a year. Easy to use with no issues. The BEST part is I'm saving over 32% on the price from Chewy's from what I have been paying the Vet hospital.
