    Never heard of this, what is it for?
    Is it an antibiotic or wormer?

    Thanks. I was able to confirm that it is given IM.
    No, this is a doe that had trouble settling last year, and seems to be having the same problem this year. Since she came into heat again, and it is so late in the season, I decided to go ahead and give her the shot.
    (It is meant to help her ovulate.)

    Yep, IM. Good luck. We tried it on the last breeding on our doe who keeps coming back into heat too. Same problem. Here's hoping it works for both of us.

    homebirtha, how old is your doe? Mine will be eight this spring, and last year was her first time to have this problem. I am wondering whether she will have trouble conceiving from now on. Last year, she came into heat, and was bred, several months in a row before I finally gave her a shot, and the breeding took. Then, where she had been having triplets in previous years, she had one huge buck. :(
