Vaccinating At Home Is A Much Less Expensive Way To Vaccinate Your Dog

I know sometimes money can get to be an issue in the care of our dogs and certainly dog food and everything else seems to be going up in cost. So for many families the budget can get tight at times.

Several puppies I sold were lost in the last year because the buyers couldn't get into the vet for vacccinations and worming. Now I don't know if they couldn't get in because of time restraints or money, but there is an alternative that is a lot cheaper and much more convienent.

If you can't afford to go to the vet, consider doing it at home.

Most vets recommend doing wormings every two weeks, and I say once a week with Panacur(fenbendazole). And... if you see your puppy passing worms do a power dose: meaning worm them three days in a row. Warning: do not power dose(overdose) with anything but Panacur, because anything but Panacur can cause your dog harm.

Most vets recommend doing a 7 way vaccination at 6 weeks, and I say my pups get the first 7 way at 3 1/2-4 weeks.

I found a great tutorial for administering vaccinations at home.

Doctors Foster and Smith also sells vaccines through the internet and offers on the phone help to walk you through the procedure if you are a novice at vaccine administration.

Below is a portion of the info from the link above.


It's Easy
While you may feel a little nervous the first time, it gets easier every time you do it. Most vaccines are given under the loose skin over the shoulder.

It's Guaranteed Fresh
Because we sell so many, we receive fresh vaccines every week. All of our vaccines are shipped with ice packs in an insulated carton and in strict accordance with federal regulations. We also recommend that you request Next Day or Second Day Air service when you order vaccines.

It's Less Stressful On Your Pet
The comfortable surroundings of your home are the most natural and relaxed place to vaccinate your pet. And it's convenient to you.
