    I forgot to pull the plunger out before injecting Tylan. I gave the injection and the spot had some blood. What happens if it gets in the blood and not muscle???? Will she be ok?

    Check the spot for an abscess over the next several days. But nothing dramatic should happen.

    You do not want to hit a vein! I turn them over and inject along the breast bone just under the skin. Works well for me...
