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. 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
