    After losing a whole litter of pups to Parvo AFTER being vaccinated with Tractor Supply Vaccines I get all of mine from Revival. Get my dogs vaccines cold, in good shape next day. Very reasonable priced.

    I have my vet do it once a year, just had a dog get one last week and it was 23.40 for the shot. I do a 6 month booster on those that go to the ob club on a regular basis myself. This covers the boarding requirements with the annual from the vet and boosts those most at risk. We have had some nasty stuff going around here in the last year or so. My vet has zero issue with this as they only do it if they think the dog will be at risk anyway.

    Been giving mine for years, no issues. Buy the vaccine direct from my vet.

    Thanks all for your time and responses. I ordered from Lambert Vet Supply, will come in a cooler and is $3.45 a dose, much better than $15.00 per dog.

    Just a little FYI do NOT re-use needles/syringes. Could be a very bad infection, or a damaged vaccine. Also if you try to clean then in alcohol, the residue could damage the vaccine. Find a way to get a fresh needle for each injection, it just not worth the risk. Been practicing for over 30 years, never re-used a needle.

    NateB:

    Excellent advice, but I'm using the intranasal bordatella vaccine; each dose has it's own nasal applicator.
