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.

    Easy to use

    By Samantha on Mar 30, 2021

    As others state, the cap is a bit tight, but that seems better than the alternative of the cap coming loose and leaving a needle out in the wild. They pull insulin out of the vial smoothly, and our chihuahua doesn't seem to notice them going in (though he is plied with pumpkin during every injection).

    Insulin Syringes

    By JoAnn on Mar 15, 2021

    I was looking for U40 insulin syringes with half unit markings. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that this .5ml syringe isn't large enough. Wish I could use them but need 1ml size. The pharmacist kindly check for a U40 1ml with half markings but couldn't find one. Really appreciate that Chewy arranged for the return and refund.

    Not Worth It!

    By CathyH on Jan 1, 2021

    Get what you pay for!!! They come 10 to a package and the white end is ridiculously hard to remove and I’m not sure why it’s even needed. Also, the red tip is very hard to remove. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is the needle goes into the insulin bottle very smoothly. I won’t buy these again no matter how inexpensive they are! Big fail as far as I’m concerned.

    Confused why they’re more expensive than others

    By AnneC on Dec 28, 2020

    I tried these based on the reviews even though I was using monoject from my vet and I’m confused what these are $10 more considering how poorly designed they are. Even more confused by the positive reviews. Hard to pull/not smooth and the thing that you pull on is too small so it’s difficult to even grip.

    Good Product

    By Buddy on Jan 12, 2021

    We typically buy this same product, but with a case that holds the syringes, however they have space where you could place more in them. Haven't had an issue with them breaking or being faulty

    Competitive prices, super convenient

    By Marvin on Feb 10, 2021

    I have found Chewy's prices to be generally lower than anywhere else. You throw in free shipping and it's a no brainer.

    All good with one issue

    By MerlinsMom on Oct 29, 2020

    These are the same style as I purchased from my Vets at a lower price so I was pleased to find them. The markings are clear, easy to read, smooth plunger, my cat doesn't act like he's aware of his shot. The reason for the 3 star rating is the red-orange needle cover is very hard to remove, and I've wasted several because the needle bends as I'm tugging to get the cover off. It's difficult to pull the cover straight off. Very tight. I'll try a different brand next time.

    They work.

    By whitedog on Jan 31, 2021

    I needed insulin syringes for my dogs care, they work. Shipping was fast and dependable. Cheaper than at the vet's office.

    Take Note...

    By CatEnthusiast on Dec 4, 2020

    Excellent insulin delivery vehicle. Syringes were sharper than expect though. Appreciate the recommendation. Definitely keep out of reach of children. Also, glad to find out this product came from Minnesota.

    Easy to Use!

    By Katkandoo on Dec 28, 2020

    These insulin syringes are so easy to use and to see the amount given to my cat. He doesn't even feel the needle when inserted, they are so smooth.
