Our vet warned us about this when we asked for banamine for our first aid kit many years ago.
(We trail ride and camp far from vets...) My husband was a Navy corpsman and he can do IV injections. So far we haven't needed it, but friends have and we've given an injection. I think if you're going to get meds from the vet, they need to make sure you know what you're doing. We never give banamine if a vet is coming, because we don't want to mask symptoms. But when you're in the middle of nowhere?... Yeah. It becomes invaluable IF you know what you're doing.
If you're not sure, stick with the paste/powder.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
