Complications or hazards involving intravenous drug administration via the jugular vein in the equine are well known. The most common problems would involve perivascular injection, intra-carotid injection, too rapid administration, sensitivity to the drugs(s) used, and use of drugs incompatible with the intravenous route. In this case report, I would add carotid artery laceration to the list.
