So Glad I'm Doing The Sub-Q Myself

Cartrophen injections are helping our arthritic 18 year old cat, Ginger. We're boostering every two weeks and I'm so glad I started doing it myself. At the Vet's Ginger is stressed. She knows something is up and she snarls, hisses, claws, bites and fights. Despite her age she's fast as lightening and strong enough it takes me to hold her while the Vet cautiously approaches her from behind.

At home with me it's pet, pet, pick up some skin, done, pet, pet, pet. She hardly even seems to know it happened.

Plus the savings, wow. It took me about an hour round trip, and gas to visit the Vet. They charged me $22 for each visit. But my last visit plus 5 pre-filled syringes was only $31. Next time I will get more syringes.

Thought my experience might help someone else if this is an option for you.
