Instead of having the vet inject the vitamin B directly into the bag, a better idea is to get your own vial and inject each dose yourself into the administration port on the IV line. That way you can keep the vitamins fresher (they degrade when exposed to light - so store the vial in a dark place).

See if you can find some Beechnut baby food. It contains only chicken and broth.
