Default Banamine? How much and how to give?

I'd like to give Banamine to Twister. She is about a month old and, as I mentioned in another topic, is not doing very well since being disbudded 2 days ago. My vet says he can give the Banamine, but I'm going to call and ask him if I can buy the shot from him and then administer it myself.
I'm supposed to give it IM, right? I'd like to do it in the shoulder because I'm afraid of hitting the sciatic nerve in the back leg.

Think not that life owes you a debt;
To lose it is to live;
'Twas not bestowed on you to keep,
But to give, and give, and give.

Don't clasp it close, but fling it wide!
Do good to great and small.
Keep no account of loss or gain;
Ask nothing, and give all.

IN HORSES banamine is dosed at about 1cc per hundred lbs and can be given either IM or IV at the same dose.
Check with your vet before giving it though.

When I had to dose my 3.5 month old wether the vet gave me a banamine paste. My boy weighed 42lbs and it was just a 1/4"bead. Not much at all.

If you get 1cc syringes, it is easy to dose those really tiny kids. The nice thing about Banamine is that it is 1cc per 100 lbs no matter what the animal is.

Thanks everyone! I got the Banamine from the vet and gave her 0.1 cc yesterday afternoon. She's doing a bit better and she even jumped on a climbing toy this morning, but she is still far from her usual self.
