i am extremely sorry for the loss of your beloved kitty. unfortunately, it is most probable that the cause of his death was the vaccine. vaccines contain some horrible additives and chemicals that can cause reactions in many pets in different ways. if people will take the time to research the side effects of vaccines and shots, it may save a lot of pets' lives. for example, the only vaccine required by law for cats in most states is the rabies vaccine. however, that rabies vaccine contains an adjuvant, a chemical irritant in it that is supposed to increase its effectiveness by getting the rabies vaccine into the muscle faster. now people are becoming more & more aware that these shots are causing cancer at the site that the vaccines are given in the animal!
it's sad and very tragic that vets don't tell people about this. they make money from vaccinations, but these cat vaccines are dangerous and most of them aren't even necessary especially if your pet doesn't go outside. my cats are all indoors only! they do not get any other vaccines except an annual rabies shot, required by our county law!
i found a local vet who gives only one brand of vaccine, merial, and they do not add any adjuvants to their rabies vaccines. therefore, this helps to reduce and eliminate the possibility of cancers caused at the vaccine site. my cats are healthy and happier, and i feel a lot better using these vaccines, even though they do cost a bit more than the average vaccines that contain all the bad stuff. please do your research as much as possible.
good luck, and i hope you can replace your kitty and give another one a really good home!
My 3 years old Boston terrier got a booster shot of Vanguard 7 yesterday at noon. Within 1 hour he got small and big lumps all over his body and his face started swelling. He was very itchy and restless. Immediately took him back to vet for a antidote shot. His face swellings set back to minimum within 20 mins, back at home he was throwing up (it contained a little of blood)and drinking lot of water, the lumps did not disappear until late at night. He could barely walk, couldn't lye for more than few mins, most of the time he was just standing still and starring. He was still very latergic in the morning, but at least he was now able to have some sleep and rest. In the evening he got some appetite back, still has a swelling under his chin and is still far away from a playful dog he used to be. I'm afraid of possible side affects in the future... I will never ever vaccine my beloved animals again!
