Administering pet medication to your cat via injection

If your cat develops diabetes, you may have to give him an injection of insulin everyday for the rest of his life. This isn’t as bad as it sounds. It is sometimes easier to give him an injection that it is a pill.  Grab some of his fur and lift. Then brush away his hair until you see a bare spot. Insert the needle into the surface of the skin, press the plunger and that’s it, you’re done.

If your cat is not laid back it may be a little difficult at first but over time, it will get easier and easier. Just be patient and you’ll do fine. If you are administering insulin, make sure that you keep it refrigerated at all times.
