    Better than the Big Brands

    By VWprowler on Oct 7, 2021

    I prefer these needles over the big pharma brands like BD. They have 1/2 unit marks, which is all I need for a dose for my dog. The needle is short (5/16") which is better for her than the long (1/2"). The syringe is smooth and I have no issues with getting air bubbles out of them.

The BD brand are more expensive, but an inferior product, with impossibility to remove air bubbles, syringe doesn't move smoothly, and no 1/2 unit marks. I know 1/2 unit does is a bit strange, but my girl is extremely sensitive to insulin and just a little keeps her in range.

    Not originally the ones I wanted, but they work

    By on

    These were not the original size syringes I intended to purchase, which have a longer needle. It has taken a while to adjust to the smaller needles, but I believe my cat may enjoy them better. The half unit markings are very useful and are definitely better than the other syringes that does not have it.

    I’m so Grateful

    I checked around for a good price for insulin syringes for my diabetic dog. I was surprised that the prices varied so much from vendor to vendor. Chewy had a great price, and they shipped immediately. Thanks!

    Diabetic dog

    Needed a comparable, yet less expensive option. These were 1/2 the cost and received a gift card and free delivery if $49 purchased, so I thought why not try!!!
