    Do you vaccinate your dogs yourself or do you take em to the vet?

    If you do it yourself, what type and brand do you usually use?

    I do mine myself why pay a vet to do somthing that you can do yourself and save a little $$$ I use a % in one and a 8 in one.
     

  3. Do everything my self except rabbies
     
  4. You can order antibiotic capsuls from Revival animal health. My wife just ordered 30 Amoxicilln capsuls for $8.09. She also orders our shots from there.

    Shots

    I give my own shots and order them from Revival. My vet told me that they don't recomend giving a six week old puppy 7 or 8 in ones anymore. He says give them the 5 in one. The Leptose is too hot for pups that young and some will have a reaction? I give 5 in one @ 6 weeks then a 7 in one @ 9 and 12. If you go to Revivalanimal.com, and click on the fish section, you can order amox, cephlex and all kinds of antibiotics that the vet charges big $ for at a fraction of the cost. Look at your old prescription bottles and see what size dose your vet gave you and order that size. If you raise many pups its good to have some Albon on had. Get this from your vet and use for a prevent for cockcidiosous. (spelling??) Order a bottle of the Fish Zole. This is the magic pill. If you ever get a dog (grown or pup) with the squirts, give twice a day. Grown dog 1 whole pill, pup 1/4 a pill twice daily for 3 to 5 days. Watch and see how fast it clears up. I'm not a vet but have used these meds that I order for a while. Can't tell you what has been proven medically, but can tell you what has worked for me?
     
  7. If you talk to the folks at Revival they will tell you what the recomended antiboitic dose is for a certain weight dog. Good info dbounds

    thanks for the info
     
  9. I give my own shots and order valley vet supply
     
  10. I give them 8 in 1 shots at 6,9, and 12 weeks. I order a box of 25 shots from Jeffers cause that's the cheapest place I've found. If I just need a few I will pick them up at the feed store.

    i swear by the dog owners little black book. it gives you a ton of information as far as dosages and where to get your meds and how to get perscription meds without the persciption.

    Is the brand of vaccine important to you?

    Some are considerably higher than others and I was just wondering if there really was that much of a difference.
     
  13. I don't know if there's a difference in brands but I think the shots I normally use are fort dodge.
