How To Safely Dispose of Sharps

There are some medical conditions in cats that can be controlled by the use of medicines that are only available in an injectable formula. In many cases, cat owners are willing and able to administer these medications at home.


When it’s needed, many owners are unsure of how to handle the disposal of the needles, syringes, and sharps used to administer the medication.

It is important for the health and safety of your family that you discard of sharps properly.

See what The Vermont Department of Health has to say about how to handle and dispose of sharps and make changes to your disposal routine if needed.
