I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Are you looking to inject morphine into Boof? Morphine is usually dosed ranging from 0.5 - 2 mg/kg intramuscularly, subcutaneously, or intravenously (IV). The duration of effect can vary, and often redosing in needed after 2 hours. If you elect to do this be sure that Boof's vet is apprised.
