What are U-40 Syringes (for ProZinc Insulin & Vetsulin Insulin)?

U-40 Syringes are the preferred choice for insulin administration for ease-of-use and your pet's comfort. For veterinary use only with ProZinc Insulin. U-40 Syringes require a prescription from your veterinarian if you reside in Connecticut, Delaware, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Florida (Broward and Dade counties) or New York.
Syringe coming out of sharps container
 
For: Cats
 
Benefits:
High quality sterile syringe for managing your pet's glucose levels
Latex-free
Non-pyrogenic (does not produce fever)
100 syringes in each box
Available with or without a sharps container for easy disposing

How it works:
The U-40 Syringe is a high quality, sterile, insulin syringe for veterinary use only. It is the preferred choice for administering insulin and managing your pet's glucose levels. Our U-40 1cc, U-40 .3cc (3/10) and U-40 .5cc (1/2) syringes come inside sharps containers, which are very easy to use. When you are ready to inject your pet, simply take one of the U-40 syringes out of the bottom of the container. After injection, place the used syringe into the hole on the top and twist the knob located on the side of the container until the syringe falls to the bottom. Our U-40 1cc syringes are also available without a sharps container.

Cautions:
Do not sterilize or reuse syringe.

Directions:
To draw the insulin into the syringe, inject the insulin bottle with the syringe and pull back on the syringe plunger until the proper dose is inside the syringe barrel.
Do not sterilize or reuse syringe.
For the syringes that come with sharps containers, pull an unused syringe out of the bottom on the container and when done injecting, drop the used syringe into the hole at the top and turn the knob on the side until it falls inside the container.
Follow your community's guidelines for the proper disposal of sharps and sharps containers.
Tip: When drawing the insulin into the syringe, keep the vial upside down, with the syringe needle pointing upwards to release the insulin back into the bottle if any air enters the syringe.
Dosage:
Pet Weight Recommended Guidelines*
Cats: All weights If dose is up to 12 units, U-40 .3cc (3/10) syringe
If dose is 12.5-20 units, U-40 .5cc (1/2) syringe
If dose is 20.5-40 units, use U-40 1cc syringe

 

Dogs:
Horses:

*Please note: If you have received specific instructions from your veterinarian please follow those instructions concerning the right syringe for your pet.

Storing: Always store product in a clean, dry place.

They work geat...so good to be able to afford a new needle for each injection....I also increased his protein intake....beef liver, calf liver, turkey breast, hamburger and eggs, on a daily basis....most of the dry food is low cal (indoor)...so far so good 04/20/2014
Highly Recommended Was nervous after reading a few negative reviews about this site but decided to go ahead and order anyway. Arrived on time and exactly as described, for less than half of what the vet's trying to charge me for the same syringes. 02/28/2014
great value Good syringes; great price, and even with standard shipping they always arrive within a few days. Delivered to our door, saving a trip to the vet ,and at a great price 02/21/2014
Very speedy and quality product I'm pleased with the U40 insulin syringes I purchase for my diabetic kitty. 09/02/2013
Great price! I have two diabetic kitties, so I go through needles! These are cheaper than from the vet and come with the same handy needle disposal kit. 07/26/2013

Answer: 
it has a cap on it but you should never recap a syringe to avoid injury.
Dispose of it in a plastic box. Some syringes come with a red biohazard plastic box.

Answer: 
No, all of the U-40 syringe needles are 29 gauge (refers to the thickness of the needle) and 1/2". The U-40 is preferred for accuracy of the insulin dose.
