Yearly vaccinations of pekingese resulted in back legs becoming paralyzed. She received DHLP/Parvo, Corona, Bordetella, and 2 year Rabies vaccinations. The vet gave them in the rear legs and now those legs are paralyzed. Some mobility coming back after one week, but still unable to move for more than a few feet and her movements are all over the place. She cannot control her back legs and becomes very frustrated and tired when trying. I only let her try when she is carried out to the grass to relieve herself. This is a dog that used to walk everyday with her big dog friends. It is very sad. Her vet is claiming that he did nothing wrong.
About 7 hours ago both our Lhasa Apso's received the second shot of Lyme's vaccine. About 4 hours later the smaller of the two (he weighs 10 lbs.) began acting like he didn't want to move, he was shaking, no appetite, and was acting very scared. We contacted an emergency vet and they said they could not determine if there was something else going on with the dog without examining him. Prior to the vaccine the dog was fine. In researching the vaccine we found the dogs could suffer all the symptoms of Lyme. Our other Lasa who weighs 20 lbs. is showing signs of being tired and no appetite. We are concerned that they will be suffering with these symptoms for a long time had we know this we would not have gotten the vaccine. Our vet did not tell us what to expect, he told us he felt the vaccine was perfectly safe.
Two years ago in November, I took my cat in to get her boosters and rabies shot. I had almost lost her in May due to a vet giving her two shots of Metacam. She was hospitalized for two weeks and barely made it. My vet insisted she needed the shots because she goes outside for about an hour or two a day. Three to four hours after vaccinations, she started getting cranky with me and other cat. I had to hand feed her water and food for a day and a half. She came round, but I will never vaccinate her again for anything. My vet says I am risking her life, but with her history of kidney failure, I just can't chance her refusing to eat and drink.
My siberian husky received her Lyme Disease and Rabies shots as scheduled (she was a few months old). Four days later she slowly started becoming paralyzed. She was diagnosed with Coonhound Paralysis. At one point she couldn't move anything, and could barely lift her head. She did eventually walk again, but her legs are crooked in the front, and weak in the back. The two companies involved settled with us, which covered the cost of most of the vet's bills, and Physical Therapy, but Luna will never be normal. I wouldn't wish this on anyone!
I have a Doberman who is 6 weeks old I gave him his first shot myself. It seemed like 24 hours after the shot his poo got runny but was still eating and drinking water. But a couple hours after that he started puking just his food. Then he didn't want any water or food-was weak. He slept through the night had a couple runny poos. This morning he started drinking again and even took a couple of bites of food at 3:00 today it will have been 48 hrs since his shot. He stopped puking but still seems under the weather. Should I take him to the vet?

My 10 yr old cat went into renal failure within 2 days from receiving the FVRCP booster. The vet has been giving this booster on a yearly basis. She is currently undergoing IV treatment at the vet's office. Prognosis not good.
I had a 8 year old sheltie. She had continuous ear infections that were treated with steroids and antibiotics which made her comfortable for a week or two but the swelling, redness and pus from her ears never went away. The vet finally talked us into her having a ear canal ablation (removal of the ear drum) on her right ear. She was doing better and on her two week post surgery check up the vet gave the yearly shots to her. Two days later she was admitted to the University of MN hospital, placed in an oxygen kennel, IV's, and died 4 days later. She should never have received shots when her immune system was healing... The shots killed her. I currently have two shelties, they eat a raw diet, and only received their first baby shots. They will not get shots unless a titer test is done and the results are that it is necessary. I have read a comparison that by giving animals their yearly shots it is like giving humans their shots that are given their first year of life every year. It's sad to think that by trying to provide the best care for our fur babies we are slowly killing.

I have a 5 and a half month old Pit pup. She got spayed, her rabies shot, and her 3rd round of puppy shots all in the same day. When I picked her up they told me I could try and feed her at 7pm, and that she may throw up from the Anastasia. Well she didn't want to eat or drink anything that night and she was throwing up foamy substance. However, the next morning her face was extremely swollen she could barely open her eyes. She still refused to eat or drink anything. And now she was throwing up yellow bile everywhere. She had heavy breathing as well. She had trouble going to the bathroom, she would sit there and squat and nothing would come out. No bowel movements at all. I had to rush her to the hospital and they said it as most likely from the rabies vaccination. I was lucky to get her there so soon because they explained to me that it was a severe, life threatening case.
Vaccinations? do I let my cat go without it or with it. If they get rabies or distemper how long do they live. My cat was 1.5 years old and I took her to be vaccinated. My cat, the one good thing in my life I loved, died within 10 minutes from these vaccinations. Then I find out oh this happens sometime, thanks a lot for telling me that after the fact. These past few days have been the hardest of my life. So maybe one day rabies or distemper might have set in. But I know she would be here now if I hadn't have done it. She basically died for nothing and I'm having a really hard time with it. I'll never trust a vet again.
EC: So sorry for your loss, James.
My sister sent me this site, as I was telling her about my little Bichon that got his shots in Cordele, Ga from a Vet who gave him the rabies, distemper and parvo shot. We left the Vet's office and silly sam's breathing increased rapidly, then his eyes were dialated and he whined funny like he was really not feeling well. I rushed him back to the vet and he watched him for a short time and he seemed to be okay. I have never seem him react to any shots before this happened. I need to have them given separate or do something different next time.
MY little Sweetie (Shit-zu)received a second shot for Lyme's disease. Her shoulder and right leg became swollen and she had trouble walking and playing. It took a week for her to return to normal. I will not give her the shot next year. I will use natural oils to prevent ticks and fleas on her.
Pet Vaccinations and MRSP
I am registering to inform you of a dog vaccine reaction. My dog was rescued in 2008 and she had vaccine reactions to her Leptospirosis vaccine and DA2P three year vaccine in June of 2009. My dog had to large lumps at each injection site. The one was the size of a golf ball and the other was the size of a half orange. She apparently had a suppressed immune system following treatment for ear infections with Prednizone and antibiotics. A couple weeks later she contracted MRSP of the bladder. She had been treated with an antibiotic that was not resistant to the infection. She had a second round of MRSP. In Oct. 2009 we worked with a holistic vet in England using homeopathic remedies as well as certain vitamins, minerals and a mushroom derivative to help improve her immune system. She is also getting nosodes to prepare her for the side affects of her 2010 vaccines.
EC: Hi Gardengal,
Do you mean MRSA?
My parents took their puppy (3.5 months old) in for standard vaccines and the dog became ill within hours. The dog had trouble using its legs, lying down, and breathing. The vet could not find a reason why the dog was slowly losing lung power and within 5 days the dog had to be put down. Several years ago a cat that I own was temporarily paralized as a result of the distemper vaccine. Various sources indicate that the distemper vaccine is not mandatory. I am one that will not give that vaccine in any future animal that I may own.

Deadly result to vaccinations
My 8 yr. old labrdor retriever was a healthy dog unit he received vaccindations for Coronavirus, DHLPP, and Rabies on 10-18-2004. within 14 days of this vaccination "packet" he became listless and very sick. After 8 subsequent visist to the Vet Clinic from 11-01-04 to 02-08-04 he was euthenised on 02-10-04.Further reading and research makes me now believe that his death was suddenly precipitated by the vaccinations given on 10-18-2004.
I hope other animal owners think twice before submitting their pet to the "annual booster shots".
Last summer my dog had her annual check up with the vet. I can't tell you exactly what boosters she got but she did get some. I don't know if I can attribute my dog's symptoms to the vet visit but the problems did come after the visit. Our Golden retriver who was 8 years old at the time began having acccidents in the house both urine and stool, mainly stool. This was happening even when we were home to let her out and at night. Her stool began to look like a big slimey pile of alien birth. This went on for several months then stopped. The vet looked at her, did a stool sample and said he could see nothing wrong with her. I have always wondered if she had a side effect from the boosters or from the heartworm medicine. I changed her food slightly but I don't know if that made the difference or not. Anybody else have these problems?
