Unhappy injured horse, back hove

Left eye hurt herself last sat, she cut the back of her hove with wire and I am trying to give her a shot, the farrier that is helping me is out of town until monday, can I wait until then or do I need to give shot now?

What kind of shot are you giving and why? Do you know how to give a shot??? If you don't know what you are doing, then don't give the horse the shot yourself.

What is the shot for? Are you talking about a bullet or an injection, and do you know how to give whichever it is?

Errr what kind of shot? A painkiller, like Bute? Bute is supposed to be intravenous, I think. Or is it Banamine? I believe Banamine can be given intramuscularly as well as intravenously. I'd leave it to the vet. Painkillers come in other forms like pills, paste and powder-- I suggest using that until the vet can help you. If it's a shot to prevent infection (antibiotic), I think they have powdered forms of that as well.

This is obviously a troll, people.

It's trying to make all y'all upset.

Do not engage.

P.S. I would guess, if not a troll, it was just Tetanus :]
