Flexible Needle HolderNew hand-held needle holder virtually eliminates broken needles and medication waste, according to the manufacturer.
The "Lure Lock Adapter" consists of a pistol gun syringe that attaches to the user's belt or pocket by a metal clip, a 3-ft. long, 1/ 8-in. dia. flexible plastic tube, and the needle holder. You insert the needle into the animal and squeeze the syringe handle to dispense vaccine. As you insert the needle your hand or fingers remain flat on the animal's surface, allowing you to keep pressure on the animal as it moves.
"The needle holder is easy to hold and move as the animal moves. The result is less chance of broken needles, less chance of user injury in farrowing crates or small pens, and less stress on animals. It's very humane," says Don Forsey, sales manager.
Sells for under $20.
