In today's economy everybody is looking to save cash here and there. While it is not generally recommended to scrimp on your pets care, you can save money on your pets vaccinations.
Check with your Veterinarian to learn if they have a day where they provide a shot Clinic and provide vaccine to clients dogs and cats at a reduced cost.
Set up an appointment to have your pets vaccinations done at that time.
Your local Animal Shelter could offer vaccinations on certain dates for a reduced rate. Check your local yellow pages listings and give them a call to arrange your pets appointment
Animal ControlYour local pound often offers vaccinesvaccinations to pets at a lower cost usually a couple of days a week for 4 hours at a time and one Saturday a month.
The Saturday shot Clinics, can get crowded, some do not do appointments, so you could just show up with your pets, but expect long lines.
You really are better off, going in for your pets shots during the clinics that are held during the week, there might still be a bit of a wait but I guarantee, it will be a less time than on Saturday.
Finally you can give the shots yourself at home, but you will need a helper to hold your pet for you.
Many pet warehouse stores offer the shots, make sure that the stores understand how to properly store the injectables. They must to be sent refrigerated and imemdiatly placed into the fridge. If there is any doubt as to how the injectables were handled prior to sale do not buy your injectables from this pet warehouse!
Be certain that you go through the directions and that you administer the proper injection at the proper time and using the proper method of administration.
Some vaccines may be given IM, which means that the injection is given into the muscle.
