Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine injection practices on swine farms as reported by veterinarians. Participants were members of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians. Veterinarians that self-reported as clinicians were contacted for participation. A web-based survey was administered regarding farm demographics, injection technology, needle types and sizes, and injection locations for each stage of production and for pharmaceutical classes. Additionally, descriptions of protocols for handling a broken needle event were recorded.
