That’s great way to go Shady Lady.
If your injecting Fortaz the dose on an 8 pond tortoise should be .26 ML
Your fine in that spot.
What you have to worry about is injecting large volumes of the antibiotic Baytril which can destroy cell structure (necrotic to skin and muscle).
So always be careful of what drug you are injecting where.
Always follow your Vets instructions.

Remember to alternate the legs that means its going to be 6 days before you back to that leg.
The more you do it the better you’ll get. Just try to get the needle in the deepest part of the muscle as possible.
Use the Probe to find the best spots.


I hope the instructions and pictures were clear.
