Vaccinating questions.

Hi since spring is here I have been thinking about vaccinating my horse duke. I was wondering where I could get vaccines? Can you do them yourself? What vaccines should I get? How do you know how much? I was thinking of doing tetanus and rabies. Can you do rabies shots by yourself?
Thanks.

I believe you can give shots yourself, and you can buy them online. But, I would research the cost. Online prices and shipping fees can be just as costly as getting a vet out to administer them. If the prices are close, I would just call a vet, they are the trained professionals after all.
However, if it is much cheaper to buy online and administer yourself, I would call a vet out or go to your local vet clinic to get them to teach you how to administer the shots properly.
Best of luck!

and you can ask your vet about the certain amounts and types of vaccines as they are different for all horses depending on age, weight, etc.

I don't mean to offend and if this does I am sorry. But, it sound like you would be better off talking to a Vet and have them take care of this for you.

I know someone who has had horses for 15 or so years and she's always vaccinated them by herself. And the horses were totally fine She's in college right now so I can't talk to her. She said she gets her tetanus vaccine from our local vet. I'll give the vet a call and see what she thinks.

Not sure if this is the case in Manitoba, but BC you cannot buy vaccines online, you have buy them from a vet and the vet has to have seen the horse before. You might check that out.

Giving them yourself is fine IF you know the area to give them safely and know how to do it.

Can cause problems if you don't.
