Syringes for Use in Veterinary Medicine
Syringes for veterinarians are among the most important consumables required in veterinary and animal clinics. They not only find use in blood collection and punctures, but also in wound irrigation, vaccinations or other injections, as well as for oral administration of medications and nutritional supplements. As a rule, syringes are sterile single-use products that are promptly disposed of following use. Syringes with which oral administration of medications/nutritional supplements is performed can be reused after a careful cleaning. For this, it is important to ensure that each patient has a dedicated oral syringe in order to prevent infectious transmissions through saliva.
In this category, you will find single-use syringes, vaccination guns for vaccinating livestock, jet injectors and drenchers for administrating medication and nutritional supplements orally.
These practical applicator instruments are quite frequently used in large animal medicine to administer minerals, medications and other liquid preparations to horses, foals, cattle and calves. Drenchers have a very long, rounded cone to prevent damage to the sensitive mucous membrane in the animal's mouth, while also easily reaching the back of the animal's oral cavity to administer the medication. This minimises the risk of the animal spitting the preparation back out.
Jet injectors are used to inject medications without the use of a needle or cannula and represent a special type of syringe. In veterinary medicine, pressure injectors are predominantly used for small animals in order to ease subcutaneous injections. This applicator can be cleaned with distilled water and reused.
Sterile single-use syringes have diverse applications in veterinary medicine. Not only are they used for subcutaneous, intramuscular, intraperitoneal or intravenous injections, but they are also used for blood collection, for collecting urine with a urinary catheter and for collecting liquids during punctures. Sterile single-use syringes are also used in veterinary medicine for irrigating wounds. These syringes are available in various sizes and feature smudge-proof scales for precisely dosing medication or samples.
Vaccination guns come into use when multiple animals need to be vaccinated together, such as is common in livestock ranching. These allow one to quickly vaccinate the animals without consuming so many single-use syringes. Vaccination guns typically feature Luer-Lock connectors to which the necessary cannulas can be attached. The amount of vaccine to be applied can be precisely dosed so that it can be consecutively administered.
