Symptoms of Vaccine Side Effects in Pets
Pet vaccination is increasing in number and frequency, and as a result, illness after vaccination has been on the rise in sensitive dogs and cats. Unfortunately, most traditional veterinarians are not adequately trained to recognize acute and chronic vaccination reactions in pets. Typical vaccine reactions may range from immediately after vaccination to days, months, or even years later. Symptoms occasionally seen in the first 24 hours of vaccination include fever, tenderness, facial swelling, hives, swollen lymph nodes, vomiting, diarrhea, and rarely, acute liver and kidney failure.
