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.
Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.
*Be Aware* These syringes are susceptible to air bubbles. Thankfully I noticed it right away but no matter how slow I pull back, bubbles form consistently near the rubber stopper, sides and top. I have to flick the syringe to get the bubbles out before I administer the shot. My spouse has the same issues, so it's not user error. After this box, I will be going back to the other manufacturer. I wanted these to work because of the size and 1/2 unit markings. :(
So I got these because sometimes the Covidien needles appear to be too thick. well, maybe they are that way for a reason. these were flimsy and it was also impossible to get the air bubbles to the top.
These are the same quality as the syringes we got from our vet, and they're less expensive from Chewy.
This syringe is better than we previously purchased. The 1/2 unit markings help give right amount and needle is sharp. It hurts less; our cat does not flinch in pain
and plunger moves smoothly not sure why it requires the hefty plastic cap though
I give my cat 4 IU in the am and 3 in the evening so smaller syringe is easier to read.
Package of 100 Syringes. Small needle so when used (while the cat is eating) he doesn't stop eating and he acts like nothing just happened.
My cat requires insulin injections 2x per day. UltiCare syringes are nicely boxed - 10 packs of 10 each. Easy to read and use.
Arrived in a timely manner. Exactly what l needed.
The needles go in easily and don’t seem to bother my cat at all. The gauge on the side of the syringe is easy to read. I really like the convenience of being able to use the sharps container for storing the new syringes as well as disposing the used ones. I am very happy with this product.
