Description

VetOne Insulin Syringes/Needles U-40 29 Gauge x 0.5-in are prescribed by your vet for the injection of U-40 (40 units per ml) insulin in your diabetic pet. U-40 syringes are the syringe size that is recommended to use with ProZinc insulin. 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.

    Review for: EXELINT insulin needles 1/2 ml U-40 29G 1/2

    By on

    Review for: EXELINT insulin needles 1/2 ml U-40 29G 1/2 This is the first time receiving this brand of insulin needle for my dog from Chewy. Originally I received VetOne and then Ultimed/Ulticare. This needle is so LOOSE to the point when you put your thumb on it to position your hand to put it into the skin, you will lose at least 5 units of insulin before you can even put the needle under the skin. Insulin winds up all over his fur. That results in having to use another needed to give the remaining amount and wasting a lot of insulin. (My dog uses 20 units 2X per day - 1 vial every 1.5 weeks). This brand should not be carried or used by pet parents. You will waste your medicine for Review for: EXELINT insulin needles 1/2 ml U-40 29G 1/2 This is the first time receiving this brand of insulin needle for my dog from Chewy.

    Quality has changed!

    By on

    I have been ordering these needles for my diabetic cat for over a year now, but noticed right away something was different with this last shipment. The quality/sturdiness of the needles has decreased (naturally the price stayed the same). You need to be much more careful (gentle) when drawing insulin from the vial as well as when giving the shot. Wish the change was communicated to recurring customers.

    Not Vet One brand! Buyer beware!

    By on

    I have been receiving these syringes for the last few months, and the chewy pharmacy has switched to a super cheap generic brand that is seriously the worst! I would give zero stars if that were possible. Just know that you will not receive the Vet One brand that is shown in the picture (which are awesome by the way). Chewy- if you are reading this - let me know when you bring the good ones back!

    Needles drip

    By on

    The last 2 orders of Insulin Syringes have been different than originally received. We do NOT like them at all. The needle drips because the plunger is not as well fitting in the tube. We lose insulin with each injection. Would LOVE to go back to former ones

    Excellent Syringes for My Diabetic Dog

    By on

    I really like these syringes as the rubber stopper just moves more freely. If you give your fur baby shots frequently, you know how important that is. As always, Chewy does a superb job of providing for my fur babies!

    Perfect, so handy

    By on

    These needles were the exact same kind that we got at our vet for our diabetic cat. I’m so happy that we can now get them through Chewy....cheaper and more handy.
