The Bunnies, Bovines, & Birds 4-H Club had fun and learned a lot about giving different types of animal injections by practicing on fruit, chicken, and flowers.

Elsa Holland learning about subcutaneous injections using an orange.

The club was taught about subcutaneous, intramuscular, and intravenous injections using oranges, bananas, raw chicken breast with the skin on, and hollow-stem flowers. The youth didn’t want to practice on their animals so they were allowed to learn skills that they needed and never harmed their animal by using this method of teaching.

Volunteers and parents joined in to work on their injection skills themselves.
