Hi all
I have a question, have any of you ever hear of giving a cat an epi-pen jr to a cat for a allergic reaction? And if so were do you give it? I got two different answers.I need clarification..Thanks

The vet who gave you the epi-pen should be able to tell you the best place to administer it.
If you didn't get it from a vet (but the vet told you to use it), ask the vet.
If none of the above is true, please don't use it at all. Medicating animals without vet advice (unless you have years of experience) is a very bad idea.

One vet said put in the thigh,the other said in the scruff of the neck...I'm going to give it in the thigh, but just seems funny they said two different spots.Has anyone here ever used the epi-pen?
