Should pass. Limp may be unrelated to the LA 200. What ailment were you treating?

LA 200 is administered subcutaneous. When you say "square in the neck" gives me the sense you stuck her perpendicular to the surface. Oxytetracycline can cause swelling especially if you drove the needle into the muscle rather then just getting the needle under the skin.
