How to Give your pet injections

If you need to give your pet injections at home, I'm sure that your veterinarian or one of your hospital's staff members have already taught you what to do and walked you through the motions, so treat this as a refresher. Probably the most common reasons you will have to give injections to your pet would be to administer insulin to manage diabetes, allergy injections to help build your pets immunity against specific antigens, or subcutaneous fluids to help treat dehydration as is often necessary when managing pets with kidney disease. The principles of administering the subcutaneous injections are all the same-the key is to lift or, as we like to say, tent up the skin, introduce the needle at about a 45 degree angle all the way through the skin, then depress the plunger.
