Rapamycin was injected. There was one small drop of blood, so may not be huge injury?
In small animals even the loss of 2ml (or less) can be bad.
Another thing is that you cant see what happened internally: bleeding internally, wounding, etc..
Now changes are big that its not a big problem.
However as bob said: the changes are that the experiment failed. Its possible you for example lost the antibioticum with the blood that got lost.
Anyway: normally there should be no blood when injecting the mouse.
If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

I know now. This is my first injection. Hopefully will improve soon.
