    I give it in the area of IM in the diagram shoulder spot shown.
    You can feel an indentation there where the muscle sits, that is where you give it.
    Make sure you feel it and not just give it in the area, because you will hit a bone, if not careful.
    I have given it in the neck before but, the reaction was horrific there with some goats.
