Adverse Reactions to Vaccinations

A small percentage of pets may show a mild response and look “off colour” for a day or two. This is considered quite normal.

You may notice that they have lost their appetite and just want to lie around and rest. Some animals may resent being handled and may be sore or tender at the injection site.

The most important thing to remember is that this type of reaction is nothing to be alarmed about.

If the response to the vaccination appears more serious than this, or your pet has not recovered within 48 hours then please do not hesitate to contact your Veterinarian for advice.
