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. In other words, taking B12 whether as a shot or pill will not lead to weight loss. If you're low in b12, you may need B12 pills or shots, but that won't cause weight loss. ...Read more

Should heal soon: Most likely the shot caused trauma to a nerve. This is unfortunate but it should fully heal within a short time. You might try the homeopathic remedies Arnica (for trauma) and Hypericum (for nerve injuries). if it it not better within a few days acupuncture and micro-current therapy can help too. Generally if injections are given in the upper outer quadrant of the buttocks such injuries are rare. ...Read more
