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.

    Easy-to-use Syringe

    By on

    Our vet first gave us these syringes when one of our cats was diagnosed with diabetes. We have to give him insulin shots twice a day. The numbers on the side are easy to read, so the measure will be accurate. The needle is long, but thin. Our cat adapted quickly to having the shots, and rarely notices when he is stuck.

    The needles are great although a bit costly. Could not find at a local pharmacy. Will be a repeat customer for as long as necessary. Customer service is so helpful and quick to respond.

    Great Syringe for U-40 use

    By on

    These syringes are simply great! Of the five different brands of U-40 needles we have tried, these have been the best for us. They are almost the perfect size for administering my 13-pound feline friend his insulin. If you’re a regular insulin administrator, you’ll understand how important the following things are: Strait out of the box, these syringes are smooth to use; the stopper runs very smooth, and doesn’t “stick” when trying to draw the insulin in, even at small doses. These syringes have strong needles; which are thin enough to be almost painless when being inserted, and are thick enough they don’t bend easily; which is important when administering insulin. The top of the plunger These syringes are simply great! Of the five different brands of U-40 needles we have tried, these have been the best for us.

If you’re a regular insulin administrator, you’ll understand how important the following things are: Strait out of the box, these syringes are smooth to use; the stopper runs very smooth, and doesn’t “stick” when trying to draw the insulin in, even at small doses. These syringes have strong needles; which are thin enough to be almost painless when being inserted, and are thick enough they don’t bend easily; which is important when administering insulin. The top of the plunger on these needles is large enough for the needle to be used one-handed, and makes it easy to hold the skin “tented” while you “drawback” on the needle once it’s inserted into the skin... as the Vet. reccomends, to ensure you’ve not stuck a vein, or are drawing air; which happens if you accidentally push through the other side of your “tented” spot on the skin. These are clearly marked in full unit and half unit measurements, which is wonderful when making life-saving decisions on administering insulin to my feline friend. -I read one review that said these are hard to read; I respectfully disagree, and reccomend that for the safety of their animal, that reviewer try some eyeglass readers when drawing insulin for their pet. . Myself, my wife, my Vet., nor his staff have had any problem reading these needles; my vet even asked where I had acquired them, as he wanted to be able recommend them to other clients who use U-40 insulin. Overall, a high quality great product, delivered quite expediently by Chewy, as always. … more

    1/2 unit marks are hard to read and tightly spaced

    By on

    Read the information carefully. I did not notice the '1/2 units markings....the closely spaced hash marks are difficult to read and be sure of correct dosage.
