big enough needle
hey guys today went to a loca pharmacy and told them a bunch of b/s about i had to inject my dog blah blah blah well they gave me a 5/8 in. 25 g needles ....will these be long enough for a thigh injection ....im not carrying much body fat either and i heard it would be from some but some say you have to have an inch so just want some opinions......
thanks in advance....

No I think you would need at least an inch.

i have used 5/8 on my thigh and they seemed to work fine... kind of depends on how much fat you have, but since you say you are pretty lean, you should be fine.

bro if you arent carrying much fat 5/8ths would be fine for quads, i have used them everywhere but glutes, with no problems

no 5/8 isnt long enough even if u are thin. thighs need at least 1 inch same with glutes

I would use a 1 inch needle. Just to be sure that your going far enough into the quad muscle. You should be fine if you are pretty lean

@ 190 6 1` I used 25g 5/8 never had a problem, but now to be safe only use 25g 1" (except for pec)

exactely.... by not getting the opil deep enough into the muscle, u risk getting an abcess... those are not fun.... trust me i speak from experience. got a nice 6 1/2 in scar from getting them taken out on my quad
