How much do dog shots cost?

I recently went to an orthopedic surgeon to get my foot casted. He told me that I need to have a puppy shot to get the cast removed and then agn a month after. He also sd that he could not guarantee that my foot will not get infected if I go through with the shot and that it is dangerous and if I can not have the shot there is no point in having the cast. He also recommended that if I take off the cast I get the shot.

So, how much do shots cost and who do you go to?

Thanks for your time.

I dont know if there are any laws that restrict how much you are supposed to pay for a dog shot but if he's willing to guarantee that it will not cause infection then you can try and get a better deal.

I guess the first question is how long is your dogs life expectancy? I think if you answer that you may get a better idea of what the cost will be.

My dog is about 4 and will likely live another 5 years, so that would give me about 10 years.

I'd say a 30 day rabies tag is about $40. I've heard people clm the dog gets a rabies tag automatically because they pay for a spay and neuter. However, when I called the local pet control shelter, they sd that they do not give free tags because they are a charity and they fund all the spaying and neuters themselves. It was a bit confusing to me as I had always thought they got free tags because they were a rescue organization.

My local pet control shelter is pretty good about the rabies tag. I believe it's $5. I'd check the phone book there.

When I had a pet I always got a rabies tag because I assumed that's what they cost. We always bought the tag because the one way a dog can get a problem is when it bites someone and the only way to know for sure is a shot.

We are lucky here, all dogs are required to have a tag. (and yes, spayed &, neutered dogs can too)

My local P&,C in the UK has some really great information, it is all listed online and you can pick up a copy of the booklet for £3 if you visit.

I don't think it costs anything at all here in the US. I would check with your vet and/or P&,C to see what they charge.

We have a shelter and they give out free, if the dog is micro chipped (which every rescue dog should be) and also we check their rabies vaccination records. They will give you a card if they do not have them, that can be returned if the dog is lost. This is good in case they are stolen, we get all of our dogs spayed/neutered because they do not want "to sell" animals in the shelters.

Thanks all for your input. I'll definitely be doing some research to see what it will cost to have the vaccine administered. I have found the "Pet Rabies Vaccination Clinic" in my area on-line. They charge about $25 for a full vaccination with boosters every year. There are also a few options I saw for spaying and neuter to lower costs, but I think I'll just stick to the basic full shot.

If your dog does get a full vaccination with boosters every year, does your vet check their records to make sure that it was up to date? I read somewhere that they need to have that dog's records checked every year, even if they got that full vaccination a few months before. So maybe there is a way around that if you ask your vet. Good luck!

This may be a little late but I will be doing this with my puppy (which I picked up last week). What I am wondering is if I can get the vaccine done for $25 at a private vet and do it privately at the vets office? Because I don't want to deal with the vet on my own time and money and do not want to waste time on the phone with the vet on a Saturday if it can be done privately.

If you do it privately, I'm not sure how that vet would handle the boosters, but they might be okay with that, I'm not sure. I think I read somewhere that your vet needs to know you got the full dose at least 5 months prior to make sure that you're up to date. The reason I ask is because I think the vaccinations will probably be up for renewal in January and I would be glad to have some peace of mind about it before that. I really want to go with the full vaccination route with this particular puppy since my first puppy was given everything that could possibly be given for $500. Not sure if it's worth the peace of mind to pay a few bucks to a vet on your own time when you can save some money by having everything done together with your regular vet.

I had to have my puppy's first series (he's 5 months old now) at a private vet. It was really easy and quick. I got the vaccine in his leg, I guess that's what it was called. (it's not a shot) and it was done in under a minute. (If that makes sense, because we were so close to the vet)
