Hi. I have googled this issue but haven't been able to find a solution that works. I am a pet sitter and one of my pet clients is diabetic. She is old and a bit frail. The routine done for morning and night shots is to lock her in a room with her food (away from the other animals). I get the shot ready and walk in and check her bowl. Sometimes she only eats a few bites so she can't have her shot, and this is why she's not given her shot while eating. Her food cannot be left out for later because the other animals will eat it. If she's eaten enough, I then give the shot, or attempt to... she pretty much associates me with her dreaded shots and knows when it's coming. She puts her back to the wall and growls if I approach. I can't get near her without her attacking me - she has scratched my hand numerous times. I really just don't know what to do. I have missed more than a few shots at this point because I couldn't get near her. There is nobody around to help restrain her. When I do manage the shot, it's only with the element of surprise - if she's in a good mood and her back is turned, I can sometimes sneak in the shot if I'm quick enough. Otherwise, she'll fight me. I am thinking of buying gloves to protect my hands, but they'd have to be thin enough that I have range of motion to pinch her skin. Her skin is pretty thin too - not much to grab. I do feel bad for her, and I feel bad when I can't give her her shots. And because I am the pet sitter, there is very little I can do to change the situation. Can anyone help?
