    Where is the best place to find 6cc 20 gauge syringes? I am having a hell of a time finding them online that are reasonably priced. Also can I reuse the syringe after infecting the masters blend if it’s cleaned thoroughly?

    Ditto. Farm supply places have hypos for livestock in all sizes. And big boxes of them.
     
  4. Jeffers pet supply. even with shipping they are way cheaper than any farm store that I have found. your 6cc 20GA are 16.99 for a box of 100. I keep 2 sizes on hand, 1 for smaller ducks and 1 for larger feet like geese

    Yes they can be reused. I usually get anywhere from 8 -12 sets of feet before I have to change them out.

    At our farm coop, a 3 ml syringe comes with a 21 gauge needle for less than a buck. You can clean them with acetone and use them several times. Many veterinarians will sell them also.

    6.99
    Med-Vet International in Mettawa, Illinois has 3cc syringes with 20g needle for $6.99 per hundred. Not sure how much shipping would be.
