Hi. My vet came out Tuesday night to look at some of our goats. I had a doeling that had developed an abscess on her cheek the day before. He cleaned out and drenched the abscess then gave her a penicillin shot in her hind leg in the muscle. The leg is really tight, I haven't given her another injection in that leg, she will not put hardly any weight on it. What should I do now. Thanks

Poor gal...Karen is correct..it will take time...I prefer to avoid the leg when ever giving shots...Sub Q can be done where the neck meets the body..lots of loose skin there...IM is done succesdfully in the kneck muscle, although I never do IM unless its Hormones..
