Default Re: problems with aggressive dog injections

My dog started fighting injections because I wasn't moving the injection site around enough. After 2-3 months she started really fighting them and I discovered that once I had a rotation of 4 different sites the shots became easier. She was busy eating her dry food (with a little treat on top) while the injection took place. She was a small dog and needed a lot of insulin so I needed her to be busy while I did the injection. She stood on the same mat on a counter or table or the tailgate of the truck, with her food....she was most content when she knew exactly what was going to happen and how it happened.
Of course I needed a journal to remind me where I had done the injection previously!
Wishing you all the best,
