Description

Ulticare Insulin Syringes/Needles U-40 29 Gauge x 0.5-in with 1/2 unit markings 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.

    Very Good Syringes

    By on

    These syringes were our first try of needles with Chewy and as we have come to expect from Chewy, they are very good. We have to give our Star 4.9 units and the syringes are very easy to read. The marks are in .5 units making it very nice to determine the amount. We have purchased quite a number of products from Chewy and they have always come through for us.

    U-40 Syringes have 1/2 unit markings

    By on

    My cat requires 2.5 units. These syringes have 1/2 unit markings for the correct dose. It took a while for delivery but well worth the wait.

    Outstanding!

    By on

    I normally hesitate to order things on-line; however, Chewy has provided much-needed medications and supplies for my diabetic terrier, as well as premium food choices - all reasonably priced. Customer Service is professional, friendly and helpful. The entire process is fast, efficient and so easy - for example, Chewy contacts my Vet directly for all the prescriptions my "Rudy" needs! All packing is clean and protected (example, Insulin is cold packed and always still very cold when I get it, as it must be). Everything said here has also occurred throughout the COVID19 pandemic. Thank you!

    Same syringes, no disposal box

    By on

    These are identical syringes as the ones sold with the disposal box, except these are less expensive. However, you need a disposal box with enough capacity to house these since used ones should not be tossed in the garbage. With all we are doing to try to limit diseases, please don’t put others at risk of getting stuck by a used syringe.

    Needle bit too long

    By on

    Easy to see the dose I have to give my dog, but the needle has a bit too long. I will give a 4 overall. I am not dissatisfied with it.

    Not impressed

    By on

    Placed my order for syringes. Paid. No one was able to get ahold of my vet. So then the order was canceled. So then I had to reuse syringes until I could reorder. Not happy...

    Chewy provides great compassionate care always & now especially during our time of need. The item I usually order was out of stock, but I received this substituted request item so promptly! Thank you again for making it easier for us to take care of our pets!

    Thankful for these

    By on

    My mom got these for me because I have diabetes and she was running out of syringes to give me my insulin. I told her to check at Chewy because she always gets my special food there too. My fur mama is happy, and the price was good too!!
