hi i was wondering do some breeders give their animals injections themselfs:001_smile:
im not sure this is aloud, but i have known people do it (when my mum bought her JRT)
thanx for the reply im not sure if its allowed either.
Depends what injections you mean.
Vaccinations require a prescription so you would be unable to obtain them unless you were a veterinary professional.
I believe the only injections you are allowed to do yourself are those to treat diabetic animals.
Out of interest, why would you want to do them yourself? The thought of sticking a needle into one of my babies makes me rather faint!! :cryin:
It depends what country you're in. It's not legal for an owner to give injections here in Slovakia but in the UK animals may be given injections by lay-people under veterinary direction. I have given my cat antibiotics, people give their cats insulin etc.
i was just wondering after reading some threads was trying to work out who was giving there pets vac's.I didnt think it would be allowed. I take it ur not keen on needles
I'm fine with needles, i've injected a few animals, having worked in animal welfare and had plenty myself, having 2 children!!
Just think it's the sort of thing that needs suitable training and veterinary guidance. Medication in the wrong hands could be fatal, that's why we have vets
Which is why it's only legal to do at the direction of a vet. They would usually show you how to do it first and it would just be a subcutaneous or intramuscular one not intravenous.
thanx for every1's replys interesting answers
