How to give a subcutaneous injection?

After preparing the syringe containing the drug to be injected and the cotton wool soaked in disinfectant, the animal should be approached calmly, talking to it, and gently reassuring it.

Before using the syringe, turn the syringe upwards and release a few drops of product to ensure that the needle is free. The best area for subcutaneous injections is the rib. Simply lift a “pinch” of skin with your fingers and, after having disinfected it, insert the needle parallel to the ground and inject the drug. Finish with a massage.
