Comments about Insulin Syringes/Needles U-40 29 Gauge x 0.5 Inch:

I use these for my dog's twice-daily insulin injection, & have never had a problem with these syringes. Previously, I was able to purchase the syringes-only in a box, but that option is no longer available & now must purchase the disposal container with them for more $$. I am able to get disposal containers from another source at no charge, so don't have a need for the ones I must purchase with the syringes. Still, the sale price with free shipping is better than from my veterinarian.

      Maybe 1 out of 50 seems to be plugged or otherwise won't allow you to withdraw any liquid into the syringe but the remaining needles work well enough.
