At PetScript, we’re proud to provide you and your patients with pet medications in a wide variety of forms so that you can work closely with your clients to ensure your patients receive the care they need to maximize the success of your treatment outcomes. Injectable medications are sometimes necessary, depending on your patients’ conditions and individual needs.
What Are Injectables?
Injectables are liquid medications that are intended to be administered via injection under a patient’s skin with a needle and syringe.
High-Quality Veterinary Injectables
We understand that certain medical conditions in animals can only be treated with injectable medications. For example, animals that have been diagnosed with diabetes might require daily insulin shots, and animals with severe allergies might require routine allergy shots to help keep their immune response in check.
For this reason, we are proud to provide more than 30 injectable medications that are designed to bypass the digestive system by being injected directly into a patient’s bloodstream.
Tips for Administering Injectable Medications at Home
Injectable medications are injected into the subcutaneous (meaning beneath the skin) tissue where they can easily be absorbed into a patient’s bloodstream. Dogs and cats have much looser skin than humans, which makes it easier to administer an injection to a pet.
To administer an injection, your client will gently pinch a bit of their pet’s skin together, insert the needle, inject the medication, and swiftly withdraw the needle. Then gently massage the area of the injection for a few seconds after administrating the shot.
Injectable medications can be administered by you or by a pet owner at home. Before sending pet owners home with an injectable prescriptions, veterinarians should ensure their clients are trained and feel comfortable administering their pets’ medications on their own.
Injectables Designed for Comfort
Patients might experience a slight pinching sensation when the needle enters their skin. However, our injectables use very small, single-use needles to minimize pain. Most animals become used to receiving injections, and administration becomes much easier over time.
At first, we recommend offering animals a meal or treats at the time of their injections. This distracts them from the shot and also creates positive reinforcement of medication time.
Produced Safely in a Sterile Environment
We ensure all injectable medications are safe and sterile by producing them in a state-of-the-art sterile environment.
