Description

Insulin Syringes/Needles U-100 31 Gauge x 5/16-in are used for the injection of U-100 (100 units per ml) insulin in pets with diabetes. 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.

    1/2 unit markings are very helpful!

    By on

    We have a cat with diabetes who has been difficult to stabilize, thus we're often tweaking his insulin dose, and sometimes this includes 1/2 unit increments. Having this marking on the syringe is very useful, given how small the units are. This eliminates guesswork (and a lot of squinting), and I feel more confident that he is getting the correct dosage.

    Works well!

    By on

    Works well at a good price. But I didn’t realize it’s 60 syringes and not 100. Thought it’s really cheap for 100 but was 60 only. Very odd quantity box.
