What’s the difference between insulin syringes | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Videos

June 2022

In this VETgirl online veterinary continuing education video, Amy Johnson, BS, LVT, RLATG, CVJ, VETgirl’s Manager of Content Development reviews U-40 versus U-100 insulin syringes. Depending on what type of insulin the veterinarian prescribes for a pet owner, the insulin syringe type must be carefully utilized, otherwise dramatic overdosing or underdosing may occur. Amy also stresses the importance of talking with owners about syringe disposal and gives some ideas as to how owners can do that. Please make sure to always check on your state and local sharps disposal regulations as well as waste management company policies before making recommendations to owners.
