Slip Tip Monoject Single 1cc Syringe
Perfect for my foster kittens
I have been using these syringes to give dewormer, medicine and electrolytes to my foster kittens and cats. I like that they glide smoothly (some syringe plungers get stuck halfway down, and that can make the experience frustrating for a squirming, frightened or feral cat) and that they come in these smaller sizes, which are more appropriate for giving bottle-fed kittens a quick and correct dose. They are easy to clean and reuse.

This is great for giving liquid medicine. Super easy to read the markings so you can easily give the correct dosages.

Easy to use for tiny animals.
I raise tiny Maltese and Yorkie puppies. This syringe is very useful for giving medication such as the liquid worm medicine as well as a wonderful supplement feeder of puppy milk to newborns. It's tiny and easy to use with the small breeds. I am thankful to have found them and was able to order some for future use. I would recommend this product for feeding tiny animals or giving medicine.

Good for multiple uses
Good for several uses. 1 syringe (used 2x a day to give oral meds to 4 rats) lasts ~1 week before the plunger's rubber tip begins to degrade. It becomes harder to push the plunger and administer the dose at an even rate and I have to throw it away. From past experience, if giving meds orally to an animal with a small mouth, I don't advise forcing a stuck plunger. They'd rather have the meds in their mouths then, for example, all over their faces or on the floor. Plus, it's a waste of meds. Used for (1) animals with mouths larger than a rat's mouth, (2) fewer animals than four, or (3) less than 2x a day: you'd probably get a lot more uses out of it. But, it's always good to have extras! :)
Oh, and the barrel's scale markings usually start to wear off before the rubber tip degrades (when used 2x a day for 4 pets). For me, the 1.0 mL mark wears off first (where I tend to handle it the most), which isn't so great when you need to administer a 1 mL dose. The other marks slowly wear off in decreasing order after that.
