Have Dog Health Questions? Ask a Dog Vet Online.
hi there...You can do one of two things. First, get a small amount of epi from you vet. Be sure it is placed in a glass vial. It needs to kept in the fridge and away from light. have them give you a 1 mL syringe and have them calculate your dogs dosage. Secondly, a human epi pen can be used if needed. Human skin and dog skin have different thicknesses due to the amount of collagen. Because of this difference the human epi pen is not as good. My advice...go with option one.
hope this helps.
you can have a vet give you a small amount of epinephrine in a vial...it would be just like us giving the drug in case of an emergency. Have them show you how to give it in the muscle. If you have have several emergencies they should give you some. A different vet may be an option for you. I know for a fact that we have done this for several clients and i know of two that have used it for such emergencies. I hope this helps.
