Pig medication habit, that is.

I want to buy a hundred (or two dependingon price) of the 1 cc syringes. ONLY the model pictured on the bottom below.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'd also like to get some of the smaller .3 or whatever they are syringes and some curved tip syringes.

I'm out.

I buy the bottom ones at Valley Vet

Cal Vet Supply has the curved tip syringes.

Not sure about the smaller size.

You can also ask a local pharmacist if there are any diabetic supply stores around you. That's where I get mine. It's essentially a pharmacy dedicated to serving diabetics.

Duh. I'm having a brain fart kinda day. I just saw the thread title said "Online." Oops.

try checking with a local clinic to see if they will order you some. I know two people who do that. sometimes it can even be cheaper.

IMHO only Baxa's are the best (with apologies to Lynx, her pictures are the greatest):

Exacta-Med®%20Oral%20Dispensers,%20Pharmacy
%20Pack&GroupDetail=Yes

I broke the link up to not screw up the post and thread.

Call their customer service people; they are exceptionally helpful and work with small animal rescuers, frantic parents of small children, etc. all the time.

I looked on Valley Vet and couldn't find them. That's exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks much. No time or patience for shopping locally. My local drug store doesn't have the ones I want.

Hey Leah, you're going to drop from shock next time you come over and see my newly organized Cavy Spirit pharmacy. Finally. But, it's amazing how few things I have left once I chucked most of the dead and significantly expired drugs. Need to restock on some basics, too. Oh and I restocked the little empty bottles. They are underneath that area. Feel free to take some for yourself.

I'm with Talishan, the Baxa syringes are great, and they sell 0.5 cc versions.

I have them bookmarked!

I really like www.calvetsupply.com I have some of their curved tip syringes and the tips are nice, long, and narrow - great to get into pesky little holes for flushing. I also have 2 of the huge 60cc feeding syringes, haven't had to use them yet, but they look like the sized tip and the size of the syringe will come in handy for either the pigs or sick foster kittens.

I usually go with www.revivalanimal.com

You can get Monoject (another high-quality brand) 1cc syringes without needles (for feeding and such) for 15.30/box of 100. !cc syringes with 25 G x 5/8" needles are 18.95/100.

Monoject curved tips are 27.00/box of 50 (12 cc only size).
35 cc syringes are what I use for fluids (since I only give that much at a time). 21.00 for 30.
60 cc syringes are 20.00 for 20.

Do you mean 3/10cc insulin syringes? Do they have needles attached that don't come off?

No needles. They were just like a smaller version of the 1cc ones I like.

You can't get insulin syringes at Revival Animal Health.

I checked out the calvetsupply site. They have some better prices, but I think they are Terumo and B/D syringes mostly. They do run cheaper, but seem to degrade more quickly. For injections, you're only going to use them once anyway. I guess it depends on what you want. I prefer Monoject (and I give TONS of injections daily) and I so love the Baxas but I've never worked anywhere that used them frequently. I think they come with Metacam suspension.

Hmmm.... Do you know the manufacturer? I haven't used them before...

I'm sure that T and I have the same 3/10 CC syringes. Mine say B-D on them. They also say USE U-100 INSULIN ONLY and USE ONCE AND DESTROY (hah). I usually get them for rat dosages. They gave me a bunch of them with needles and injectable baytril inside when Janie was sick, but I yank the needles off.

I have those for Muffin's insuline shots.

I guess I never tried yanking the needles off! Maybe I should when I go back to work on Thursday?

So U-100 insulin syringes w/needles can be purchased from the calvetsupply link. I should probably have some on hand myself. They're great for cavy blood draws.

Nurgle, have you bought any 0.5 cc's? If you have and are willing to sell a few, please email me. Thanks.

Our vet gives us Monoject. They're okay for a while. The Baxas last five times (no exaggeration) as long as the Monojects, working smoothly. Baxa will sell direct, minimum order is 100 but they're not terribly expensive. Josephine, thank you for the Metacam note. I was trying to remember where I got my first one, I bet that was it.

For the syringes at Revival Animal Health... do you know if the 3cc syringes they sell work well for handfeeding?

I have bought some that were a strange brand on Ebay before that didn't work at all. Does their brand work well?

I think they sell B-D and Monoject. Both should be fine. I prefer the Monoject. You want to get luer slip tips if you want to use them for handfeeding. Luer locks need the top ring trimmed if you want to use them for that without the extra ring up there. Pain to do that, if you ask me, but it could be done with a pair of White's nail trimmers.
