I just had my 4 year old lab vaccinated with the rabbies & (8) yearly. He's never had a rabbies shot. I lived in Wagoner County & I gave him his last shots in March, but due to moving to Tulsa County he had to have them with a Vet to be registered with the City Ord. He was on an Antibotic. About 12 hours later he was throwing up. They said it was okay to give him the shots. Would it make him sick with to much medicine?

My reactions were more subtle in my dogs. My cats haven't been vaccinated much but hindsight shows hyperactivity with the one and kitty "ADD." Not a technical term I know but I really can't figure out what else to call it, reactions are all behavioral with the one cat.

2.5 y/o Australian Shepherd Spayed Female - hyperactive and distracted through most of puppyhood (did all core vaccines recommended by veterinarian). After her booster of DHPP (Pfizer) at a little over 2 she started having skin problems. Treated homeopatically (still treating) but finally starting to win over.

2.5 y/o Australian Shepherd Altered Male - Horrible anxiety (rescue dog got all vaccines at kennel rescued from). Treating anxiety homeopathically. After two year DHPP booster changes in eyes were noted developed a dark spot in only one eye, always had clear eyes previously. Skin issues showed up a little later 3-5 weeks post vaccine.

I haven't had any horrible experiences so far (knock on wood) but have noticed mild stuff. I will not be vaccinating from here on out and my pets are young so I am crossing my fingers.

I see tons of vaccine reactions in pets, it's a big part of my veterinary practice. I've seen it as long as 12 weeks after a vaccination. Usually it can be cured with the correct homeopathic remedy. Often it's just skin eruptions but I have also seen deeper symtpoms, including g-i disturbances, behavior problems and epilepsy.

My eight year old Shih-Tzu received her rabbies vaccine on Friday. She had diarrhea several hours later, then followed by vomiting for the next day. She continues to shake and refuses to eat. She did the same last year. It was insisted upon last year that it couldn't have been the vaccine! Her vet has given her Homeopathic Drops to take.

I have a 4 yr old shih-tzu. He was just given a dental vacination in a 2 part series. The first shot made him very sore. Now the second vacination was given 3 weeks later for the second series and has developed a large knot on this area. He also had the same reaction when he was a puppy and was given his first set of shots. Do you have any answers to what it might be??

I have been active in dogs for well over 30 years. In that time, I had a chow that I gave shots regularly every year. When she reach 7 years of age, she went in to shock, from a DHLPP, that I gave her. I almost lost her!! After a rush to the vets, and a nice vet bill. Vicki did recover. The vet told me that she had a severe alergic reaction to the shot, and should never use the L in the DHLPP. This was 20 years ago. I NOW, only give DHPP and only until the dog reaches 1 year of age. After that, NO MORE SHOTS. I do have to give the rabies. But, if it wasn't manditory in my area, I wouldn't do rabies ether.

My puppy is dead from the depo/corona shot. We gave our 6 week old puppy the 7 way shot and about three hours later the puppy was found out side dead lying in a pool of blood. It was coming out his nose and mouth. The puppy looked as he had been sezioring because the blood was all over in spots as if it had been moving. The puppy will be very missed and I will never give a shot again. Needless to say my cat was just diagnosed with leukemia a month ago an was put to sleep. My other cat was inside cat. The vet said after 15 minutes the virus dies if not o the animal. So, I cleaned everything the other cats shared and got the other cat her shots finding out the shot was worthless per the lawsuit being done by a lawyer. look up lawsuits on the internet.... has any one had a dog bleed out like this?

My dog was 11 years old when she was over vaccinated by a military vet tech because he was mad that day. A few months later was DX with hemangiosarcoma (cancer). This type of cancer is not found in her breed and I continue to think that it was the vaccines that caused it because I have read that sarcomas cancers are caused by over vaccinating. It has been the worst exprience of my life but I do consider my self fortunate that she is still living. This type of cancer is deadly and I have read that the prognosis is only a few months. Shata has lived 8 months since her DX.If you have an older pet talk to your vet about legally exempting your pet from vaccinations. It can be done.

i took my 4 month old female australian shepherd puppy in for her 3rd and last booster shot (borbetella, canine distemper-hlp-parvo & rabies) she was fine and energetic all day after the shot, but the next morning she seems very tired and does not want to run, and play like usual.the vet said that she could be sore & listless after the shot. I am keeping a close eye on her, now that I found more info about severe side effects with vaccinations on your site.

I had 2 bichon friese/malteseX, 9 yo, bro/sis, both in perfect health. In Sep, 2007 I took them for their annual parvo vaccinations. Suddenly, 2 months later the female is totally blind & the male is blind in the left eye. She also lost weight & was diagnosed diabetic. He had a major seizure & was diagnosed epileptic. I will never have my beloved dogs or any dogs I may own in the future, vaccinated ever again.


Distemper (Dogs)

My wonderful dog Dusty was almost 10 years old. He had been healthy except for some recent arthritis. I took him in for his annual checkup. They gave him his distemper shot. By the next day he was humped over, wouldn't eat and couldn't have a bm. Within 3 days he was on an IV and on the 4th day he couldn't even stand and we had to have him put down. His platelet count was 6, his red & white counts were both extremely low. He was bruised all over and had a huge lump at the place of the shot. The ultrasound showed that his spleen was dimpled and the vet believes he had tumors in his spleen. I don't know if he already had cancer, and the shot set things into motion, or if the shot caused his death, but I am mad! If I had known this would happen, I would NEVER have had him vaccinated that day! I miss him terribly. He was the best dog I have ever known and we will never forget him.

I have no remdedy to write about but I do have a horrible story about vaccines. I took my 4mth old full breed Maltese to get his Booster and Leptospiros vaccinations today and approximately 30 mins after leaving the vet his face, ears and mouth swell up so bad that I didn't even recognize my poor pooch. Upon taking him back, the doctor requested that I leave him for about 2 hours for observation and further meds to counteract the reaction. My puppy is home now but he is very lathargic and extremely moody and everytime I pick him up he yelps. Is this a normal occurence from the type of vaccines that was administered?
