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.

    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 27, 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

    All good with one issue

    By Grateful on Oct 28, 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.

    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.

    Great Item for Diabetic Cats

    By mmapes2 on Oct 8, 2020

    My cat was diagnosed as diabetic recently, and we were sent home with a different box of needles. These are much easier to use than the original needles we received from our vet. These have better labels, including half units. They have caps to protect the needle and the plunger. They come in bags of 10, so while each won't remain sterile, they are covered with a cap for safety. I will definitely purchase these again.

    System feedback

    By Chris on Oct 14, 2020

    The syringes are great. For the most part the whole process is smooth. If I wish to skip the syringes for a month I don't think I should have to go through the whole Vet process again. Other than this snag, they are usually fast to arrive and I appreciate that.

    Syringes are good....delivery was delayed

    By Debeye on Sep 24, 2020

    I put my order in a few weeks ago for insulin syringes for my cat. I'm not sure why there was such a delay, maybe it was on the part of the vet, maybe Chewy. I ended up purchasing another box from our vet a week ago.
