    Anyone have a site with a picture of where I should give the tylan shot? I have always done it in the back of the neck and want to start giving it in the breast. I know 1/4 inch off the breast bone(so I have read) but I am so worried I will poke the wrong thing. I need clear pixs please.

    I have no pic...but easily explained. Picture your Thanksgiving turkey, breast up....breast is divided by the breast bone....meaty areas on either side of this bone is your injection site. You can feel it with your fingers. Insert needle...draw back...if no blood...give the injection. Hope this helps!
