I just saw this. That device was impossible! Never mind that it was hard to get the vaccine vials on the device, but then the possibility of fractures. We stopped using the merial feline leukemia vaccine that we had used for years due to that device.

From what I understand Merial is pretty much phasing out the VetJet. They have a new non-adjuvented FeLV vaccine with standard SQ administration coming out in March. We used the "old" VetJet and never had any problems, but we don't do a lot of FeLV vaccinations. We got one of the new ones but never used it since we still had so many of the old style adaptors to use up.
