Hi, I was just about to give my Nigerian doe a dose of iron injectable, as she has been anemic for quite some time even having been wormed repeatedly, treated for cocci, and dosed with red cell for a long time. :/ I even had the needle in her when I realized I don't know if it's supposed to be given IM or subQ. :confused: I was just assuming it could be given subQ but I'm not sure. And also just wanted to make sure the dosage is the same on this kind of iron injectable, cause all I could find was the dosage for Ferrodex. Thanks

Thanks, I would think the dose would be the same, just thought I should check, just in case. If no one knows, I'll probably go ahead and give it at the Ferrodex dosage. :)

Well, I went ahead and gave it to her, but she was thrashing the whole time, and I'm afraid I accidentally injected a lot if not all of it into her skin instead of under it. :( I'm pretty sure most of it leaked out as soon as I finished. :/ :GAAH:

So I wondered if I should give her another full dose (injected properly of course) or wait a week and then do it? (I was told iron injectable is once a week dosage)

Alright, I'll wait, I was thinking it would be better to anyway. I really hate giving shots. :/
Thank you for responding. :)

Don't want to hijack the thread but can you give iron injection to prego does ? And I do also need the dosage. Thanks

The dosage I found for the Ferrodex brand is 4cc per 100 lbs.
I haven't heard that you can't give it to pregnant does, mine is so I hope it's okay! ;) I'm pretty sure it is.:)
