Giving the CDT Shot

We give our does their annual CDT vaccine one month before kidding. A few days ago was Fay’s turn.

The shot is to be administered subcutaneously, in the general area as outlined by the yellow circle.
Cleaning the area with isopropyl alchohol, before the shot.
2ccs of this, with a 20 gauge needle. We like to use the luer lock syringes.
Pull up a tent of skin… and insert the needle with the open part of the tip facing you.

After you’ve finished, pull the needle out and rub the area where you inserted the needle, so there isn’t a lump from poking her.
