Abstract : In depth evaluation of the jet injector for use in large animal medicine was made. The study encompassed both the physical and biological properties of the jet injector gun. As presently engineered, the gun is entirely satisfactory for use in a number of different species of animals, both food and companion, including equine, bovine, caprine, ovine and porcine, certain changes in the combination of nozzle, orifice diameter, intensifier and spring size are required depending on the species under study. These optimal combinations have been detailed in the body of the report. (Modified author abstract)
