Ok everyone has given info on where to buy latex/nitrile gloves; great information! Now; how about insulin syringes? Does anybody know where to get them bulk and a decent price?

walgreens sales them for around .30cents each depending on the size they make you sign for them but if you dont have a habit who cares about signing a peice of paper.
They sell them along with different sized needles. Any place that you can buy medicine for farm animals. Also any drug store. You may get a few funny looks at the drug store when you tell them what they are for though. LOL
I live in New York,I think the only way to get them is with a presrciption.I got some when my dog had diabetes,but the vet wont write up one for taxidermy purposes.
A Heroin addict can get in line and get a whole bunch for free at the government sponsered clinic, but a taxidermist has to buy them from out of state or be lucky enough to have a poor friend or relative that saves their needles for him. Go figure
A friend or relative that is diabetic, Sorry
try the local vets office, usually they are pretty sympathetic.
also the farm supply store in the animal care section.
To bypass the need for a doctors prescription, New York state taxidermists were able to obtain a "Certificate of Need" from the nYS Dept. of Health to purchase syringes over the counter. Though I've had the certificate for a number of years, I believe that it's no longer neccessary, or at least that's what I've been told. I guess I'll find out for sure when I exaust my present supply, and go to purchase more.
