TIPS

Country Smallholding - - Liz Shankland Pigs -

Read the in­struc­tions on a vet­eri­nary prod­uct; know the type of in­jec­tion tech­nique re­quired and the cor­rect size of nee­dle to use. In­jec­tion equip­ment should be clean and ster­ile. Re­duce con­tam­i­na­tion — keep a ster­ile nee­dle in the bot­tle to re­fill the sy­ringe and a dif­fer­ent nee­dle to in­ject. If you are in­ject­ing a num­ber of pigs, change nee­dles af­ter ev­ery five to 10 pigs. Safely re­strain pigs. Note any with­drawal pe­riod — the time be­tween the last dose of medicine ad­min­is­tered and the time when it is safe to en­ter the food chain. Record ev­ery­thing in your med­i­cal records book.
