Injection techniques

Administration of medicine by injection is often referred to as giving by the parenteral route (this means that the treatment does not enter the body via the digestive system). Effective administration of medicine is a key part of most veterinary treatments and many medications are most effective when given by injection or may only be available by this route. Administration of medicine by injection is essential for some drugs that are destroyed by acids in the stomach.
