Step #10 O Give the injection as ordered and recap the needle.
SAFETY TIPS!!! O Pay attention! O No horseplay! O When taking the cap off of the needle face it away from you. O Always put the cap on the needle when not in use. O DO NOT BEND THE NEEDLE!
LET’S PRACTICE!!! O Your dog “Fido” gets a shot of Dexamethazone once a month for inflammation. The medication label has the following recommendations: O 0.5ml for every 5 pounds. O Fido weighs 20lbs. O How much medication should Fido receive each shot? O Draw up the correct amount of medication in your syringe. When you have finished raise your hand. 20 divided by 5 = 4, and 4 times 0.5 = 2ml
