My Punkin, who was disgnosed the diabetes about a month ago, is now becoming quite a handful when it is shot time. After the last blood curve at the vet, he has been very difficult. I know they had quite a time with him...I sudder to think what could have gone on. The vet told me to give the shots in the back of the neck, which worked well for a while. I know they can be given in the hip, but you must be careful not to hit muscle, so I haven't tried that (although the vet recommended staying with the neck). I read on a website dealing with PZI insulin, which is what Punkin is going to have to use now, that the shots should not be given in the neck because there is little blood flow. However, they never made any other suggestion about how to give the shots. I cannot stand battling with him 2x a day. It is breaking my heart. not to mention making us both a nervous wreck Anyone have any suggestions???
