I may or may not have posted on here before about how Baylee is with shots. When she had to get her vaccines and coggins, we had to back her butt up in the corner of the stall and twitch her. She really needs to have her teeth floated but I can't schedule it until I get her better behaved for shots. How can I go about doing this?

Though she be but little, she is fierce

There's not really much you can do except know how she'll react and prepare accordingly (cover her eye, twitch, etc). I know a vet who pinches the skin hard between his thumb and forefinger (digging thumbnail into skin) right next to where he's going to give the shot for like 20 seconds, then you release the skin right as you stick them with the needle so they don't notice it as much.
