Idea Exchange: Clip jobs make insulin administration easier to see

VETERINARY MEDICINE

When we've just diagnosed diabetes mellitus in a patient, we shave a small patch of fur in the insulin administration area so the client can see the needle entering the subcutis. After getting used to giving insulin, clients don't need to keep this area clipped; however, many clients still ask for a "clip job" because it's easier to visualize giving the injections.
