2cc IM. Must go IM.
Would i give in the back of the hind leg? Ive only given a calf IM before... Maybe ill be able to take her to a vet and let them do it. I always get so nervous!
Be careful not to hit the sciatic nerve if going in the hind end. If you DNA type, you will need to type both bucks and then all the kids. It is possible to get kids from different sires in the same breeding if both were successful.
I give all my IM injections in the neck to avoid the nerve goatblessings mentioned.
I was always told hormones always have to be IM and in the neck.
But if your nervous, yes see if the vet will do it for you. It’s a good idea anyways if your a female.......even if your not pregnant it can screw with you if it spills on you (yep I know that one for a fact!) I won’t touch it any more without gloves on.
But if you have to give it just let us know, I’m sure we can walk you threw it
In the neck would be better.
If you hit that nerve in the back leg, it will lame her.
I believe this is @happybleats picture, but it has a great graphic on where to give injections. When I had to lute I used the divet in the front shoulder. Feel around for the deep dent and go in at 90* check for blood and inject. It worked perfectly and there was very little fuss.
Good pic indicator.
I also do shoulder IM shots.
It is hard to describe so the pic helps.
Although if you don’t feel the indentation area where to give it, you will hit the bone. So be careful.
I believe you talked me through it lol thank you btw.
I just put that doe in with Merlin for her first breeding today along with her twin. They turn two in Jan. So it's finally the right time
Changing topic-I love that Saanen doe in the example! Beautiful girl!
Thank you. That was Vixen. She was an amazing milker and super sweet personality.
I still have to call the vets around and see if they have any. I will just get the vets to inject it to make sure it’s safe for both me and Baby
