I currently am using the VetOne Insulin syringe. U-100 29G 1/2" 1/2cc. I am needing to give my dog 8 1/2 units. The 3/10 cc syringe has 1/2 marks correct? Is the dosage the same as the 1/2cc if I switch??
VetriJec U-100 3/10 cc 31G syringes have ½ unit markings, however, the 3/10 cc 29G syringes do not have ½ unit markings. The 31G needles have a slightly smaller circumference than the 29G needles. The 3/10 cc syringes hold up to 30 units of insulin. The 1/2 cc syringes hold up to 50 units of insulin. You can administer the same dose of insulin using the 3/10 cc 31G syringes so long as the dose does not exceed 30 units.Verified Answer
Where on the syringe is 10.4??
VetriJec U-100 syringes have full unit markings on the 1 cc, ½ cc and 3/10 cc sizes. The closest labeled mark provided on these syringes would be 10 units. The 3/10 cc syringe features half unit markings, so the closest syringe mark provided would be 10.5 units. It is recommended that you consult with your veterinarian to confirm the most accurate syringe marking to draw up your pet’s insulin dose.Verified Answer
