If you're using one of the not so common strengths of insulin, you'll need to ask your vet the type of syringe to be used with this special prescription.

If you take a look at the U 40 and U 100 syringes, you will see that the U 100 ones seem to have "shorter" units.


The U 100 BD 1 cc syringes with varying needle gauges and lengths are on top--the U 40 1 cc Caninsulin/Vetsulin syringe is at bottom.

But if you were to fill both of them and measure how much liquid they hold, each of these would hold a total of 1 cc.



Link with tables, etc. on the two types of syringes.
