Oh, I am so so sorry for your loss. What a horrible thing.
If you were in the correct place on the neck, drew back and there was no blood, I'm pretty sure there is no way you could have known. Did your vet say it was anaphalactic shock? It seems odd that it would be that if she's had pen before...
I've seen this once before, but the person who gave the shot did not draw back so was unsure if they were in a vessel. The horse made it, but barely. We got dex into him within a minute of the start of the thrashing.
Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. It must be so hard. Hugs to you!
