How to give a horse an Adequan shot the way vet tuaght me.
Step one: Get the shot syringe and the medicine that you are giving your horse, and fill the syringe with the right amount that your vet asigned.
Step Two: Get any air out of the shot before giving it to the horse by tapping the syringe lightly and ejecting the air when it gets to the top.
Step Three: Find the triangle shape on the horses neck. (the shot must be given with in the triangle)
Step Four: Inject the shot into the horses neck straight in. (NOT on a diagnal)
Step Five: Once all the Medicine is in remove the shot.
Step Six: Rub the spot on the horses neck that the shot went in to relax your horse. (optional. I do this Before and after I give my horse the shot.)
