    That's horrible, I have had to administer IM penicillin many times and that thought has always scared the hell out of me as there is no second chance if you stuff it up. Fair enough to not want to take the risk.

    Good luck with your new barn!!

    Thanks so much!! I cannot WAIT to get out of the one I am at currently!

    Just not working out for us.

    BTW - I will let you all know how much she tells me to expect. Just for fun

    Oh OK then. My original estimate included dentistry so I am not sticking with that one.

    I'll change to $235.

    I gave all shots in butts when I just got my horses. Just for that very reason - I was too afraid to give in neck and I couldn't use vets because they had no training what so ever (didn't let vet come close). I know butt is not the best place to give (and it may cause pretty big abscess), but still was a better option in my situation.

    Anyone else?

    I have already emailed the BM to ask her, so time is limited

    If I HAD to give a shot (like a life or death situation), then I would but I would probably take your route too!

    I spent about $550 when the vet came out last month. I also got xrays though... so I spent maybe $220 or so on shots? It was all shots, plus coggins, plus some boosters for the new vaccine she was on.

    I'm giving my own shots next time around. I hate the thing about rabies shots in VA though. Pain in the butt!

    I give my own shots and it's about $38 per horse this year

    When I pull coggins in June that will be another $25 per horse I haul to my vet
