Great. Just what I asked for!

Good product. I do not recommend if you have mice that bite a lot and are not used to restraint because they can chew right through the tube.

Advantages of using a reusable gavage / animal feeding needles

There has been a lot of debate about using reusable vs disposable Gavage Needles. Here is a list of pros and cons of using a reusable gavage needle

Pros

1. Animal cannot chew the tube

2. Smoother tips as sometimes plastic tips may contain rough edges that may catch esophageal tissue while insertion and extraction of needle 

3. Tips do not come off easily which may be the case with some disposable feeding needles

4. Retains tube shape when needle tube is bended in certain angle

5. Easy to clean and sterilize

 

Cons

1. In short term operating cost may be higher due to sterilization costs but over long term reusable needles may be more cost effective depending on frequency of usage.
