Breeders/rescuers:Best price for heartworm prevention, vaccines & microchips in bulk?

I'm in the midst of starting an animal rescue and was wondering where I can find the best prices for heartworm preventatives, vaccines (other than rabies; in my state those need to be administered by a vet), and microchips in bulk. By "bulk" I mean that I'd be willing to buy a lot (100+) if it would make for a good deal and the expiration dates were far enough out.

The animal rescues I know around here partner with a veterinary cllinic and get basically at cost rates. Have you looked into that?

Yes, but so far, nothing is "at cost." Maybe it's at cost when you factor in time/labor, but it's still more than I think we could afford at first, especially since until we get more funding everything comes out of my own pocket. I can get vaccines from Drs. Foster and Smith for less than $10 per animal, but they want at least $15 per animal, plus an office visit fee.

I was going to suggest drfostersmith. I ordered bulk aquarium filters from them and they showed up overnight with free shipping....granted I am in WI where they are but it was great service. We also ordered a ceramic aquarium decoration and it showed up cracked...I called and they were sending me a new one before I could even ask.

If you do microchip contact the company..but I would never microchip without a pain med..first..we offer free microchips if the pet is going in for a surgical procedure otherwise we charge for a office vist, local anthestic, and a chip so it is around 75. if given during a spay or neuter or dental we give it free..the company Home Again dosn't charge us for the chip the activation fee is 17.99 and we just have the client make a direct payment check or credit card to home again to activate the chip..HTH

Personally, I don't have any issue microchipping animals without pain meds. I'd imagine the pain medication injections would hurt as much if not worse than the microchip itself. I've watched several animals be microchipped and they didn't appear to be in any long-term pain. The size of the needle used to insert the chip is about the same that I've used to administer subcutaneous fluids, and I've never heard of anesthetics used for subcutaneous fluids.

I really hope that someone who is considering microchipping their pet and doesn't have $75 to spare looks into alternatives. Many spay/neuter clinics, vaccine clinics, and county shelters will offer microchipping for $25 or less.

I totally agree.

OP- Where do you live? If you are in Virginia I can hook you up with lots of options.

The needle is bigger than the one we use for sub q fluids.. We use the Home Again chip maybe another company has smaller needles and we give a local to the dogs prior to chipping. If they are there for a surgical procedure the chip is free of charge the client only has to make the one time payment of 17.99 made out to Home Again..
