I'm envious that you can do your own vaccinations. We take ours in and it's around $100 a cat for that alone. Are you a vet or vet tech, cmonkey?

Nope, just trying to LBMM. You can buy vaccines from several pet supply companies, and they give you instructions on how to administer it. It's *really* easy, and this is coming from someone whose needle phobia is so strong that she doesn't even like to sew.

Try these places: (their vaccs are not in the online catalog, but they'll describe them to you on the phone, if you call. They have several different types for cats and dogs)

Some companies will not sell to certain states; I have no idea why. It's perfectly legal for me to do this, yet I can't buy the vaccs. I just don't get it. But Fosters and Smith is a nice catalog and the folks there are really nice. It's a little cheaper at lambriar, but I can't get stuff from them. Some states require you to have a note from a vet or doc to buy the syringes, too, but not here.

Anyhoo, it's *beyond* worth the price and nervousness the first time you do it. I'm saving several *hundred* dollars this way, I don't have to shove them in the car (and with the cats, that's a Big Deal), there is no fear of the vet's office involved, and they can just go romp in the yard when it's done.

So get ye to the sites and order!
