What is U-40 Syringes for ProZinc & 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.

For:

Cats for Vetsulin and Prozinc, Dogs for Vetsulin

Benefits:
  • High-quality sterile syringe for managing your pet's glucose levels
  • Latex-free
  • Nonpyrogenic (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.

Cautions:

Do not sterilize or reuse syringe.

How to Use
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Savings Saved over $15 on the local vet price. Makes it easier to afford proper care for our 14 year old cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome It's made of rigid, puncture-proof, opaque plastic. You can take the sticker off one side (we left the front one on for trash haulers down the road) and leave it on the dining room table if you want to. The syringes store in the bottom, and it holds what's supplied with it plus four or five extra packs of syringes we got from our vet. The slot on top is large, and the dial you turn to dispose of the syringe is large enough for arthritic hands. This holds much more than a store-bought sharps container would!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same as Vet The U-40 syringes are great and love the sharps disposal area. It is the same brand that our Vet uses. We didn't know the size so we bought 1cc. Rusty only takes 3 IUs of ProZinc, so we could have gone with a smaller syringe. The only problem that we have is the administer! We're skiddish about giving him the shots because we don't want to hurt him. The pictures explain why Rusty is on ProZinc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save $$$ I saved about $22.00 on my insulin needles getting them from PetMeds. The only ting I can complain about is that you sent me a dog bone as a free gift. Really people? I am a cat. I don;t like dog bones I like cat treats. I don't know any cat that wants a gift of a dog bones, what is the matter with you people? Cat treats in the future. Got It?

u-40 syringes

can they be used on a Yorkshire terrier The box says 3/10 29 gauge x 12
Asked by: michelle hatcher
Hi there, This is a question you would need to consult your vet to get the proper advice. Your vet would be the only one qualified to give you the correct answer of what syringe you would need for the medication your using it for.

Insulin dose - units vs. cc

My cat gets one unit twice a day using the 1/2cc syringe. Because of a mix-up, I received 3/10cc syringes. Using these, would I give two units, twice a day??? I'm confused about units vs cc measurement.
Asked by: Paris
As long as you require the U-40 syringes you can still use the 3/10cc syringes. The "cc" (also known as mL) is the total volume liquid that the syringe can hold but does not change the "unit" increments measured on the syringe. The difference is the size of the 1/2cc syringe is larger than the 3/10cc syringe and so can hold more volume of insulin. But 10 units from the 1/2cc syringe will be the same as 10 units from the 3/10cc syringe. Be sure that you require the U-40 syringes and not the U-100 syringes as the units are not equivalent between them and therefor should not be interchanged (10 units from a U-40 syringe is not the same as 10 units from a U-100 syringe).

what is the difference in units and cc?

I have been using u 40 29g x 1/2 " (.33mm x 1.3 cm) needles.
Asked by: shyann
Units is a specific measurement used for dosing insulin. In certain insulins such as Prozinc or Vetsulin there are 40 units in each cc, most other insulins contain 100 units in each cc.

Does this syringe come with a smaller size needle?

My vet has changed my dog to Vetsulin which requires a U-40 29 guage, .5cc, 1/2" needle. Is this available with a smaller needle (ex. 5/16")?
Asked by: Lisa J.
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.
