PetTest U-40 Syringes, 31 Gauge x 5/16-in are some of the thinnest, featuring 31-gauge needles. This helps make injection more comfortable for your furry family member compared to thicker 29-gauge U-40 needles. The length of the 5/16” needle also helps reduce the risk of a painful injection to your pet’s muscle. These syringes are specifically designed to be used with all U-40 insulins. Both sizes, the 0.3-cc and 0.5-cc have easy-to-read ½ unit marking for accurate dosing every time. The needles are extra sharp and lubricated and have a tri-bevel tip for added comfort, while the extra-wide finger grips allow for unmatched control. These syringes come with protective needle and plunger caps.
Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.
I bought these U-40 syringes because they are the only ones I could find with a short needle which I thought would be better for my cat. Although the gauge indicates a skinnier needle, it seemed to hurt my cat. Also, I finally figured out that the tiny bit of wetness on his fur after I withdrew the needle was due to a droplet of insulin at the exterior base of the needle. It took me a couple weeks to determine that it wasn't me, but the syringe. I'm back to using UltiCare which my cat doesn't seem to feel and which leaves no droplet of insulin at the entry point.
The needle is nice and tiny, and doesn’t seem to hurt, but I really hope the .3cc are back in stock soon for our particular needs. We give our little dog 2 or 2 1/2 units (based on his readings), and at 6 am it’s really difficult to see those little lines, as the first listed digit is 5. It can be done, but it’s so much easier on the .3cc syringe. Those don’t seem to be available anywhere, and haven’t been for a few months.
I prefer the .3cc over the .5cc, but they've been out of the .3cc and I had to purchase the .5cc. The .5cc is not as convenient for me since she gets such a small amount and it's easier to read with the .3cc. However, these are better than what I had to purchase from my vet when I couldn't get any from Chewy while they were out with our supply issues.
At first I was leery of the .5ml as opposed to the .3ml syringes I had been using. The markings are not as distinct. However, I've found that they are easier to handle, being a bit bigger around. They still have air bubble issues, but not nearly as bad as the .3ml . Overall, they work well.
Could not find BD on the Chewy Website so I purchased these. The syringe quality is not the same as BD. I find it difficult to move the plunger to pull the correct dose. I will purchase BD at my Vet if Chewy is unable to get them stock them.
These insulin syringes were recommended to me in a feline diabetes group. These are great, work perfectly with my cats insulin and are really affordable. There are 10 in a pack and there are 10 packs in the box.
Was much more gentle to use these syringes on my Shih Tzu than the longer needles most vets start you with. It takes a lil longer to get the insulin drawn in but no big deal to comprise time for comfort for my fur baby
PetTest U-40 Syringes, 31 Gauge x 5/16-in. ARE EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED FOR INSULIN SHOTS FOR MY SHIH TZU.
Less pain shorter and thinner needle. It is a help! Thanks for caring about dogs so much!
Not sure what is up with these syringes but they are constantly filling with bubbles. I have used different ones in the past without this problem.
