Question Pentosan Question...

I left a message with my vet about this, but I'm wondering if anyone here would know.

Zee gets an IM shot of Pentosan every week. I am a big weenie and no matter how many times I've done it, I do something wrong. I hate needes. So, my trainer is going to start giving Zee his shots again. I'd like to set up the syringes for her in advance. Is there any reason that I can't fill up 10 syringes and put them in the fridge from the 50 ml bottle of Pentosan, rather than leaving it in the bottle and filling a syringe each time he gets his shot?

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

According to this article it does not need to be refridgerated. I would be hesitant to pre-fill syringes before immediate use as there is more of a chance of contamination as the syringe/needle is less of a sterile environment (once the seal is broken) than the vial. Yes, ask your vet to be sure.
