How to give IM injection to your Dog
« on: September 26, 2019, 06:05:22 pm »
I thought this might come in handy for times when, as a breeder, your dog needs veterinary attention but your vet happens not to be available at the time and you just have to administer some IM (intramuscular) injections by yourself.

So I'm sharing a video describing the procedure, safety precautions and sites of administration of IM injections in dogs here.

Important safety points to note from the video include:
  • Expulsion of air bubbles from the syringe after loading it up with the drug,
  • How to avoid the sciatic nerve to prevent post-injection paralysis,
  • How to avoid hitting the dog's spine to prevent spinal cord damage,
  • How to position the needle when giving the injection, and
  • How to avoid giving the drug into a blood vessel instead of into the muscle.
