If I give my horse her shots myself how would I get documentation for that?
I would like to give my horse her shots myself ( with the help of my mom who's a nurse, and my aunt who's a horse expert ) but I need papers that prove she had her shots. It's a requirement for the horse camp I'm going to... So... how am I supposed to get those papers?
I believe the only way to get verification is to have a vet do it.
Usually you write the date down and put the sticker from the bottle under it in your record book. Thats what the vets do and what a majority of ppl do.
It also never hurts to call the camp and tell them you do and see how you can show proof. :)
I think some things have to be done by a vet, like rabies and coggins test. IDK what all your camp requires but those will probably have to be included. It cost $84 dollars when I had the vet out to give Major his vacc. and coggins. That included rabies, west nile, coggins, checking his teeth and the farm visit. I did save a few bucks because I had already given the tetanus, but not much. Oh yeah, and I will have to have her back in the spring because I didn't get the strangles vaccine. Horse camp sound like a lot of fun! Hope you have a great time! Be sure and tell us about it when you get back.
Yes, i think it requires a vet. :-|
Only vet. I have same issue so have to use vet to do shots so I could have papers from him.
Pretty sure you can only do it through your vet. In my area the same goes for dog's shots. There are parvo vacc and stuff at the co-op, but the only way the dogs can board anywhere is if they have the shot administered by the vet.
I do most of the shots myself. Most of the shots I have to buy though the vet, they send me documentation saying they sold it to me. The other non-serious ones I just print out a paper saying that I gave this shot to Gunther on this date. No one ever questions me.
