Q & A
Our dog was recently diagnosed with diabetes requiring 28 units of insulin twice per day. We were given 1/2cc syringes which is requiring 4 syringes per day. (2 for each 28u dose) Would the 1 cc syringe hold the entire 28 units letting us only have to inject our pet once per dose rather then twice? Probably a dumb question but I wanted to be sure. This is all new to us?

Hello I only want the 3/10 cc needles, but you sell it with the container, which I don't want because I already have one. Do you guys sell that type of needle by itself??
Unfortunately, we only have needles with the sharps container in that size needle size. Thank you, VetRxDirectVerified Answer
I need 1/2 cc 29 gauge 1/2 inch MEDIUM DOSE. But the picture shows LOW DOSE. Do you have medium dose??
Lizette, The UltiCare syringes that we carry, in the U-40, 1/2cc, 29 gauge, 1/2-inch size, are listed on the box as being a medium dose syringe. The picture shows two different size syringes, and the low dose syringes pictured are a 3/10cc syringe. Thank you, VetRxDirectCommunity Answer
