I lost a beloved female Australian Shepherd, Belle, that I bred and raised... to her "MINIMAL" vaccines. I NO longer use ANY! Please check out my website for the complete story and photos of her decline. http://pinecrestaussies.tipod.com (In Memory of Belle) I'm trying to spread the truth, so that other animal lovers truly know what HARM vaccines can cause. I also suggest you join the JstsayNO2Vaccs / BeyondVaccination Lists at YahooGroups.com. READ the book: Natural Immunity, by Pat McKay. HTH, connie & the RAW Fed Aussie Pack.

I took my orange tabby in for his rabies, lukemia & distemper booster yesterday. He also got 2.25 Drontal pills for worms. When I came home after work last night he was aggitated. I thought he was hungry but he ignored the food I put down for him. Later I noticed he was licking his legs and paws, couldn't get comfortable laying down, and he was breathing rapidly. He wouldn't let me hold him or pet him for long. I called the vet at home. He suggested i give Mulligan half a Benydril. It took another 45 minutes for that to work. He is still sleeping this morning and hasn't eaten.

I had another cat that had the same reaction to his rabies booster. What is going on here! One vet told me it could be a reaction to the medium used in the vaccination. If so, why are they still useing it! I am going to email the WSU and Cornell Vet schools for more info.

To Patty from Oak Park, WA...

In your 6/20/08 post, you said about your cat, "he was licking his legs and paws, couldn't get comfortable laying down, and he was breathing rapidly. He wouldn't let me hold him or pet him for long".

we have two 16 week old female kittens from the same litter who both just had their last kitten shots. One has reacted exactly as yours did. She remains hostile, but only toward her sister kitten! It is now 7/15/08. Can I ask how your kitten is doing now and how long it took for it to return to normal behavior?

After a week my 6 yr old choc lab started having diarehha. I thought it might be his food so decided to switch it and after 3 weeks of very very loose stools. I realized it is not the food. It was the vaccination. I have him on canned dog food to give his stomach a break. No change.

About 3 months ago I took my dog into the vet to get her second DHLPP (it was a series of 3) and first Rabies vaccination. She was 14 weeks old. About 3-4 hours after her vaccinations she started throwing up, had diarrhea, and would not eat or drink anything. I brought her into the emergency room and they did a test on her that indicated she had Parvovirus. They also said they had ruled out any possibility of a false positive from the vaccination given earlier that day. Now, my uncle had given me the pup about 9 days prior to me bringing her into the vet, and had already taken her in for her first set of DHLPP at 6 weeks old. None of the other puppies he has contracted Parvo, and I hadn't been bringing her anywhere where she could have picked this up. SO, I don't know if this is possible, but I think the vaccine gave her Parvo! Poor dog, she was in the vet hospital for 5 days. She is fully recovered now but I refuse to get her vaccinated again!

my boxer had a fourth combo shot (parvo, lepto etc) along with her first rabies shot. She's 6 months old. She's had diarrhea since, for three days now. Is it from the vaccine? Our last boxer had a rabies shot at 6 months and was spayed that same day. She made it through surgery and then died when they reversed the anesthetic. Coincidence? Please post questions on the site with latest posts.

My 12month old min-pin passed away on April 5th. He had a adverse reaction to an immunity booster shot which was given to him twice, and had a total of 4-vaccines by the time he was 9wks. He developed a lg bump behind his left upper shoulder which later turned into Melenoma sarcoma. I always felt the vaccine caused this, because he yelped after the final shot, and a day later it turned into a hard lump, and 2-months after turned into cancer. We tried every method to save his life, but all that did was buy him time. I want to know what these vaccines contain, and why he had to have so many?

My 7 year old lab had a severe reaction to a seven way vaccine. I gave him the shot and within 5 minutes he had collapsed in the yard. I rushed him to the vet where he recieved 2 shots of eperinephinand a steroid shot (in less than 30 minutes from the origional shot). the vet had checked on him an hour later he showed some activity. When the vet returned two hours after that he was dead. This was the same shot I had been giving him for seven yrs, just this time it was fatal.

Last year when I took our cats for their vaccinations ( rabies, feline leukemia, distemper). Right after we got home. Our six year old cat, Fuzzy (American short haired orange and white tabby, neutered), had a severe allergic reaction to them. He was vomiting every few minutes and panting , and shaking and then started having diarrhea; all at the same time. We had been the last appointment of the day so our vet was closed. We rushed Fuzzy to the emergency clinic where they told me that it was not uncommon for a cat to have a reaction to a vaccine that they may have had before with no bad reaction. They gave him steroids and fluids intravenously, and he survived. Today, with much trepidation I took the cats for their annual vaccinations. My new vet gave fuzzy his shots along with a shot of benedryl, and some prednisone tablets to take home with me for him just in case. They told me also that I could bring him right in if he had a bad reaction. He is fine. However our 18 month old cat, Twinkie ( neutered male american shorthair cream and white tabby) is having a reaction this evening. He received rabies, distemper, and feline leukemia vaccines. He is feverish, lethargic, doesn't want to be picked up or have his abdomin touched ,and won't eat or drink. I will be up tonight monitoring him , and may have to take him to the emergency vet.

We have 4 miniature dachshunds. They had their 5 in one annual vaccine plus a rabies shot. All 4 of them had severe swelling, itching and disorientation reactions. 2 of them vomited. They had cortisone to ease the reaction. The vet said it happens to one dog in a thousand. So how come in our case it was 4 out of 4? Sad Truth is most (not all) vets and the health authorities do not care about the short term and long term side effects of the poison vaccines injected into our beloved animals. Of course it is difficult to pinpoint a long term side effect - but given the immediate horrid short term effects, there must surely be negative long term side effects as well.

My poodle was vaccinated a few days ago and I also found two lumps on him. One of his shoulder and the other under his arm. The one under his arm doubled in suize in less that 24 hours but then disappeared. If these are normal side efects, why wasn't I told by the vet or the groomer (had him groomed that day too). I have been freaking out all weekend. I found my dog a year ago and this is 1st time I got him vaccinated and they knew that. I am sad and very scared right now.

More sad news about vaccinations? I had my 4 year old Norwich Terrier vaccinated for DHPP and Leptospirosis in December per our "regular" plan with our vet. Clancy was a spunky energetic dog.Three months later, in early March Clancy became lame in his right front leg. We initially thought it was just a leg injury but, it turned out he had cancer. Three heartbreaking months and thousands of dollars later we had our be-loved dog put to sleep. We didn't know about the risks of over vaccinating. With a heavy heart and a hole in our lives we won't make the same mistake again.

My 9 year old yorkie had a seizure last night and another one today .. the same shaking with the scared look in the eye ... she is very allergic to the tick meds so I do not give her any ... I am worried that these shots caused this shaking today as she had the shot around noon time yesterday ...

Hello Dorina,

You might see if the homeopathic remedies Thuja and Silicea will help your pet. These remedies have been helpful in negating side effects from vaccines.
