Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

The results? Great! I got the DHPPA for $6.62 and then I got the Kennel Cough today for $4.49 and will do that tomorrow. Much better than taking him to the vet because I spaced it out...Didn't do the DHPPA and Kennel at one time like the vets by me do. No reaction, nothing. =) Just thought I'd share my expierence!

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

We've been vaccinating our own dogs and pups for years now. No problems and much cheaper. Only thing we can't do is rabies, as that has to be done by a vet to be official under state law.

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

Has anyone had any problems proving the vaccination, for example if you had to board your dog?

The object of life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting HOLY S%*T what a ride!

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

Yeah, that's what sucks is the Rabies, but I did find a Vet by me that charges $20 for exam and $16 or $17 for Rabies...Dang, ya can't beat that. Can't beat the Vaccine price either.

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

No you take the tag off the bottle and apply it to a shot booklet and this is what you would show the place where you board your dog

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

I kept the bottles and the receipt, but that's a good idea Chuck, putting it in a shot booklet. We don't board, but I'll need it for 4-H.

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

The only bad thing about vaccinating at home is that some vets won't take you. I called one vet and they won't take my dog because of it, but, hey, that's ok because I can't stand them there.

Re: Well, I Vaccinated At Home...

When I have clients that vaccinate at home, I always tell them to make sure to save the labels and put the dates on them - we would accept them (we hav ea boarding facility attached to the same building - and by CA law, Rabies has to be done at a vet - with all the people that have livestock and live in rural and semi-rural areas, we get lotsa folks who do their own vaccinating - tis much cheaper.
