So I did my first penicillin injection yesterday. It sucked. That stuff is super thick and clogs the needle. Then my stupid needles are too long, one inch needles and I only need to go in 1/4 inch. My little chicken Nugget is small and somewhat thin, so I put a sticker on the needle so I would know when to stop and not shove it in too deep. Well, I ended up giving the penicillin Sub-Q instead of IM (under the skin instead of into the muscle.) Very frustrating. Three more days of this and I have no confidence in my ability to administer the injection. Any of you peeps in the Orangevale, CA area (suburb of Sacramento) want to come over and help me out?? Or I could bring her to you! I know this is chicken country, so some of you have got to live near me....hopefully. I need help, or maybe a vet recommendation. Yesterday I also did some more foot surgery but was unable to find any pus. Her foot was still swollen, and I massaged it a lot before cutting. I cut in like 3 places and could not find anything other than blood, but some of it appeared thick.
