I've been doing human IV's for a long time but I still won't do horses. I'm a chicken.
Actually color is not really reliable unfortunately. Best way to know is to put the needle (no syringe) in first. If it sprays 10 feet in the air, ARTERY, if it pours out, vein.

Yikes, now for sure I will never attempt it! I'll happily pay a vet.

NEVER EVER give banamine IM. ALWAYS GIVE ORALLY unless you are experienced with IV

Banamine orally starts working in as little as 10 to 20 minutes......when I gave it to my filly when she was colicing and I noticed improvement at 15 minute mark....and by the time 30 minutes had passed she was back to normal.

This would only be true if you put the needle in the neck going down not up..............with the syringe attachment being the highest point if it is an artery it will spray....if it is a vein it will dribble out........if the syringe is going up into the neck then it will be hard to tell as the blood will just spill out as gravity takes over.

Color is not always an indicator......hence why most of the new vets are inserting the needle downward into the neck vein.
