Course the first time @ the vets there was no treat (she won't eat their treats) so she had no idea she was getting one. Happy to have it after though

How long does it take for the proper amount of fluid to be injected?
I takes about 5 mins for the 150cc's w/an 18 gauge needle - that's just from the start of the fluid flow to the end not counting prepping for the poke itself

The Ultra Thin Wall 20 gauge I want should have about the same flow rate but be a little easier on her skin being a bit smaller (the super thin walls will keep the flow rate roughly the same).

The large prefilled syringe is one way to go, using the IV drip set is another way. Depends on which way you, the cat & your vet is more comfortable doing.

She is very good during her fluid therapy
