IM and always in the neck in front of the shoulder.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Don't use a big gauge needle. I use an 18 or a 20 gauge 1 1/2 inch. I know some who use a 22 gauge but I bend too many with that small a gauge. Lutalyse has a tendency to leak out or even squirt out of the injection hole.

Why are you using Lutalyse on a calf?
