Animals having seizures from vaccinations? - Page 2

post #21 of 27

My dad's dog collapsed in anaphylaxis after being given vaccines.  Most likely the only reason he survived is because they were still in the waiting room paying for the visit when it happened. 

 

We had already decided on not vaxing DD when this happened.  My dad called me up and said "you know.... you might be on to something with this whole vaccine issue."

Yes, my sister had this exact thing happen to a puppy she got awhile back. At the first vet appt they took the puppy to (probably around 8 wks old) she was given quite a number of vaccines (never told me how many), later that day she started having seizures and then 2 days later died. I don't think the vet would ever admit to vaccine overload though.

The puppy probably died from "shaken puppy syndrome", but certainly NOT from the vaccines. Come on, vaccines are totally safe for every single patient.

My guess would be DAPP Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvo, Parinfluenza  (It is one combined injection)  Our protocol is 8wk, 12wks, 16wks then annually

Don't you think giving these vaccines yearly is excessive considering research has shown immunity (sic) to last 7 years, even the life of the animal? Why not do titers instead before vaccinating? Most vets in my area seem to favor checking titers before re-vaccinating.

We stopped vaxing our 12 year old cat a couple years after we got her (we got her at 8 months old) because she developed hard lumps at the injection site and they were obviously painful when we touched them.  We don't vax our other cat, either (she got her initial shots because she was an abandoned kitten, we got her at 4 months old).  If I had to have an animal die of something, I guess I'd rather it be because I didn't vax than from something caused by the vax, if that makes sense.

Unfortunately we have had this happen too. I took a healthy 2 year old chocolate lab in to get her rabies vaccine and 24 hours latter she started having seizures. She is now considered an "epileptic". Sad to watch and to know I let it happen to her.
