Hi. I recently had my 2 1/2 yr old yellow labrador vaccinated for the prevention of lyme diease. After doing so I am getting alot of negative feed back from some people I have spoken to regarding this vaccine, along with the breeder being opposed to this vaccine. The Vet recommended it so we thought it was the right thing to do. Now I am feeling uneasy about the vaccine and feel that I should have researched it more. Please tell me your feelings on this vaccine. He has had the first of two shots and is due for the booster. Is it safe? What side effects should I expect if any? I would appreciate your feed back. Thank you in advance.
We have a high incidence of lyme dz in our area so I recommend the vaccine. In rare cases I see a vaccine reaction. The vaccine is not 100% effective and animals can still contract lymes dz but this is also rare. vetcare
