    This is for Dr. Heidi..............
    I am glad this has come up. I keep forgetting to ask my Vet this question, if you have to administer Epinepherine to a horse or if out on the trail and the rider goes into shock from bee stings or what ever, what is the dose to give to either?
    Also, I have a very old bottle of Epinephrine, like years old, is it time to replace it? and does it need to be kept in the fridge?  And is this shot to be given Sub-q or IM?  rider or horse again.
