    Not sure if I've posted this in the correct section...I'm looking for 5/8" (16mm) needles with a 1 cc syringe. These suckers are apparently really small, and I've called Cutlers, MMH, Q&C Supply, a few other places...I'm at my wits' end. Can anyone lead me to a supplier where I can buy a few of these small needles/syringes? Thanks, friends!

    Don't know much about needles and such, but perhaps a medical supply place? Insulin needles maybe?

    I don't think you can buy insulin needles without an Rx... Can you? I can't imagine...

    Valley vet supply.

    Jeffers pet supply.

    Revivalanimal.com

    KVVET.com

    Ummm, lol, lemme see... Who else... Well, that should find you some.

    They're also good sources for ivomec injectable.

    Buy in bulk, they store and they last and they're useful.

    Good luck.

    Try your vet's office! They would probably order you some when they order their stuff! or they might just sell you a few!

    My vet does give me some if I run out of insulin needs, the others I have a ton of.
