Hello,

"By some other means than through the gastrointestinal tract; refers particularly to the introduction of substances into an organism by intravenous,
subcutaneous, intramuscular, or intramedullary injection. Parenteral nutrition is nutrition via the veins."

Literally parenteral means anything but enteral. Enteral is through the digestive tract.

Parental usually refers to intravenous or IV meds.
