Hello my name is Kady Nielsen. Today I am going to show you how to properly load a vaccine gun. I have vaccinated many head of cattle over the years and had to learn to load the gun the correct way. If you know how to vaccinate yourself you will save a lot of money on vet costs. Today I am going to walk you through how to load a gun properly and efficiently. Without proper vaccination, studies show that the meat and health of the animal can be poorly affected.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Materials you will need for this include; a vaccine gun, needles, and the vaccine.
Before we begin you will want to
make sure that you have the right needles for the vaccine you are using and that it fits into the gun properly.
Once you have made sure you have
the right needle and vaccine you can begin the loading process. To begin this process the first thing you will want to do is push in the button on the top of the gun and pull back the plunger to fill the gun with air.
After you have done this you will
want to grab your vaccine and poke the needle into the top on the bottle. Flip the bottle so it is upside down and the gun is below the bottle. Slowly begin pushing air out of the gun and into the bottle. When you get some air into the bottle pull back on the plunger and the vaccine should go into the vaccine gun. Continue pushing air into the bottle and pulling back to let the vaccine come into the gun until you have the gun full.
When the gun is full remove the
vaccine bottle from the gun and set aside. Squeeze the handle on the gun until it clicks. With the needle facing upwards continue squeezing the handle to remove air from the gun. Go until there is no longer air in with the vaccine.
You have now loaded a vaccine gun
and can go about with vaccinating your cattle.
