A verterinarian told me they give B12 injections to animals to gain weight? Why then are B12 injections given to lose weight in humans?
No wt loss w/B12: I can't speak for veterinary medicine as I am not a veterinarian. However, as a family physician, i can assure you that i don't give B12 injections to cause weight loss in humans as there is no such link between the two.
