    So since I gave her first antibiotic shot, in her rear right leg, she's been
    walking like her pastern is very weak!
    She limps constantly, and holds her leg weird, I'll have to get a pic tomorrow. It's been over a week now..when will it wear off?

    If you are giving the shots in the rear leg... it can be very dangerous...I dont like giving shots there... because of the sciatic nerve.. it will cause limping ...or paralysis...whether it be temporary or permanent... :( Hope it is just temporary....may take quite some time to get back to normal...but some never recover.... :hug:

    thanks, yeah I was told to give it there. after that I gave it in her shoulder, where I'd normally inject. doesn't seem to hurt her.. but is a huge eyesore!

    Not wanting to alarm you here but my now 11 year old doe Bootsie was 2 years old when I gave a Pen G injection in her right rear leg as I was instructed to do...I hit the sciatic nerve and she still walks with an awkward gait..almost a limp.
    It doesn't hurt her or seem to cause any pain but the gimp is noticeable, not as bad when it first happened but I still feel really bad about it even after 9 years :(
