    I was never really comfortable with giving him the shots, but after having my vet help and train me how to give the injections i felt a bit better. I would do anything for my dog, even if it meant stepping out of my comfort zone. Unfortunately, he died a week after returning home due to other complications, but at that point I was already used to it an my dog didn't mind them. Sorry I'm not much help, but I hope everything goes well!!!! 🙂 and good luck.

    thanks a lot for this tip. I'm living in Mexico, and the vet gave me shots to give to my dog. I was kind of freaked out, but it all went great thanks to your video!

    I too am having a hard time getting used to giving my dog shots, especially because many times he struggles with me. Hope it is working out for you. Funny thing is I gave insulin shots to people and I was OK with it, but when its my dog its tough.

    He said it doesn't hurt, just a tiny pin prick, I wonder why my dog yelps sometimes. I warm the insulin and insert with the beveled side up. Unless my dog is just a big chicken dog.

    I hope you are doing Ok now with your dog. Our dogs has been getting insulin 2xs daily at first it was horrible. He fought us all the way and yelped. I hated doing it. He finally got to realize he gets treats after the shot, so he settled down and life got easier after about 2mons. Now he is fighting us again and it is so upsetting. I guess you just have to do it like it or not and be gentle with yourself. Best of luck.

    Yes, having a diabetic dog is expensive it costs us about $80/mo, plus going to the vet for tests every so often, but what can you do it you love your dog. We thought of putting him down but he is still too young, so we pay and cut back elsewhere.

    Oh, I am sorry to hear about your dog. You really have a loving heart for your dog. Dog is just like human, they need health supplement as we do in the environment we live in. Have you heard OPC ? OPC can help lowing blood sugar and I have a video in my channel shows you OPC formula for dogs and cats. I know many dog owners give OPC to their dogs and they have a lot of health benefits from it. I hope it will help your dog as well. Take care.

    People are wising up to deceptive doctors  about shots for humans. There is no difference for non human animals. Stop the war against them. It is a war aginst them. Make vaccinations extinct.

    While working in veterinary practice, I have learned that peanut butter on a spoon (unless you have a peanut allery) is a great way to get dogs to take their shots. They are busy licking and usually don't notice the shot being given. Except for the small percentage that don't like peanut butter (they actually exist), then bland cooked chicken pieces work, too. Sometimes even vigorously scratching the head or belly during administration of a stick works.

    I'm trembling because I'm about to give my dog injection but I don't know if it's right what should I do? and what does c mean? I was given a 10 ml syringe and what is .01?

    Thank you! I was nervous about giving my dog her first injection and the tent tip made it so easy to follow!

    are you not supposed to draw back on the syringe first to see if you draw blood, if you do, you hit a blood vessel and need to try another spot ?

    My issue is more of a mindset thing. I'm so worried about hurting him, I just don't want to do it.

    My German Shepherd has a very severe allergy attack last night. The doctor sent me home with steroids to give him him if he has another episode. The way I understand that you go under the skin but not through the skin? Except with an EpiPen you want to go in the muscle ?
