Risks of injections

It looks like there is a typo in this article: "thrombocytosis" is a term meaning excessively high platelet numbers, not infection of a vein. The term may have been confused with "thrombophlebitis", which would be inflammation of a vein caused by a blood clot. ("Phlebitis" is inflammation of a vein.) The more correct term would probably be "septic phlebitis" - an infected and inflamed vein (which is what the author was apparently trying to describe).

Vet injected....

Today my vet killed my horse. He administered dex to him and he hit the carotid artery and within minutes my baby died in my arms. He fought to get back up when I called his name even after the vet thought he was gone. But he couldn't come back. How does a vet hit the artery? He gelded him a week ago and caused him to hemorrhage badly and then he clotted and so I gave him antibiotics daily. Vet came back today because my horse was still bleeding. Not the serum/fluid that's normal, he was continuously bleeding. He then opened him again and blood poured out. He administered this 'dex' and he left us. Rip baby.
