I HAVE A 7 YR.OLD CHIHUAHUA
& A 2 YR. OLD MINATURE PINSCHER I VACCINATED THEM FOR THERE YEARLY BOOSTER AND
WITHIN A HALF AN HOUR THEY STARTED TO SHOW SEVERE REACTIONS SUCH AS HIVES SHAKING AND VOMITING I HURRIED BOTH OF THEM TO MY VET AND HE
GAVE THEM STEROIDS AND EPI AND SENT HOME SOME HYDROX.10 MG.HE SAID THAT HE DOES NOT USE LEPTO. ANYMORE. HE SAID THIS WAS THE WORST CASE HE HAD SEEN. SEVERAL OTHER VETS HAVE TOLD ME THE SAME THING ABOUT LEPTO ,ONE SAID IF I USED THIS SHOT I SHOULD USE BENADRYL FIRST .BUT I HAVE ALWAYS USED
DHPP & DHLPP VACCINES
FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER WHY WOULD THIS HAPPEN NOW. CAN YOU SUGGEST THE BEST ADULT BOOSTER & PUPPY SHOT I ALWAYS THOUGHT LEPTO NEEDED TO BE PART OF THERE PUPPY SHOTS, AND NEEDED AS A BOOSTER SO WHERE DID I GO WRONG ?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP
Lepto vaccine is know for causing reactions. It can happen at any time. Just b/c it has not happened in the past does not mean that it will not happen in the future. Why don't you talk to your vet and find out if lepto is a problem the vet finds in your area. If not, then I do not recommend the vaccine. Vetcare
