Description

Insulin Syringes/Needles U-40 29 Gauge x 0.5-in are used for the injection of U-40 (40 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.

    No 1/2-unit markings as pictured

    By on

    The close-up photo of the syringe for this packaging depicts a barrel with 1/2-unit markings, which is the ONLY reason I ordered this "no frills" package rather than the pkg with the built-in disposal container. I assumed this would be helpful for more precise dosing (if needed) for my newly-diagnosed diabetic cat. VERY disappointed to see there were NO 1/2-unit markings on these after all! If it was apparent these were EXACTLY the same barrels that come with the disposal container packaging I would've ordered that one -- esp since it's also a couple dollars cheaper for the same 100 count (go figure!). :-( Otherwise the needles/syringes seem to be fine, though I haven't had much experience The close-up photo of the syringe for this packaging depicts a barrel with 1/2-unit markings, which is the ONLY reason I ordered this "no frills" package rather than the pkg with the built-in disposal container.

    Good quality product and delivery

    By on

    These syringes are easy to handle and clearly marked. They are consistently good quality. My cat does not seem to be aware when he receives his Insulin with these needles. Chewy always so efficient with their delivery.
