Why Vaccinate Your Pet At Home


It Saves You Money
The vaccinations are much less expensive.

It's Easy To Do
You may feel uneasy about giving your pet their vaccination the first time. It does get easier. Pet shots are given subcutaneously (the loose skin on the back of the neck) or intramuscularly. Here's how to prepare vaccines and the pet vaccination schedule.

Less Stress On Your Pet
Your pet will be much less stressed from the vaccination in the comfort of their own home.

It's Shipped Fast
We take great care to ensure your vaccines are in perfect condition when they arrive to your home. We pack your vaccine order in a ¾" thick styrofoam cooler (1.2 pounds per cubic foot of expanded polystyrene). These coolers keep vaccines 2-15 degrees Celsius for 24 hours with Polar Pack™ ice pack. We tape them securely and place them inside a cardboard packing box. We recommend ordering vaccines during the first part of the week. To reduce the chance of your vaccine order being exposed to excessive heat or cold, use overnite or 2nd Day Air delivery. Vaccines shipped by any other method cannot be returned. Be alert to your vaccine package delivery, inform your family or co-workers of the importance of refrigerating the contents. Upon receipt of your order, confirm the name of the vaccine you ordered, the expiration date on the package or bottle and the appearance of the vaccine. Please call us toll free at 1-800-367-4444 if you find any discrepancies. Delivery charges will apply to split shipments of orders.

In accordance with federal packaging regulation 9CFR part 112, vaccines may only be shipped in the manufacturers' original, unopened container. This regulation helps ensure vaccine quality and consistency in labeling. However, because of this regulation, we cannot accept open packages of vaccines for return or replacement once the seal of the manufacturer's package (not our cardboard box or styrofoam cooler) has been broken.

Please call or e-mail us with any questions you may have

Please Note: If your pet is nervous or hard to handle ask someone for assistance in holding them. Use syringes and needles only once. Safely dispose of all used syringes and needles after use. In rare instances animals may have an adverse reaction to a vaccination. The worst case scenario occurs when the dog or cat has what is termed an anaphylactic reaction. These hypersensitivity reactions cause a number of physiologic disturbances within the body that result in low blood pressure, slow heart rate and depressed breathing rate. Symptoms are the sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, coma, and death. The animal's gums will be very pale, and the limbs will feel cold. The heart rate is generally very fast but the pulse is weak. There is usually no facial swelling. If you vaccinate your own pets, you should have epinephrine available and know how to use it in case a reaction occurs.

Some states require rabies vaccines to be administered only by a licensed veterinarian. In addition, most local laws require that the vaccination include a certificate of vaccination and tag, which are only available through your veterinarian. The CSR Company cannot provide tags or certificates with the rabies vaccines we sell. THE FOLLOWING STATES WILL NOT ALLOW US TO SHIP RABIES VACCINES INTO THEIR STATES: AK, AL, CA, CT, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MT, NC, ND, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OR, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, WA, WV, WY, PUERTO RICO.

Live or modified live vaccines for companion animals may not be sold to Minnesota.
