What to Expect After Your Pet's Vaccinations

Vaccination is the most common veterinary preventative measure in history.  It's a safe and effective way to protect pets and people from serious disease.

It's common for your pet to experience mild side effects from vaccination.  Typically starting within hours of vaccination, any symptons are most often mild and usually do not persist for more than a few days.  This is a normal response by your pets immune system during the process of developing protective immunity.

Common symptoms your pet may experience:

  • Mild fever
  • Decrease in social behavior
  • Diminished appetite or activity
  • Sneezing or other respiratory signs with intranasal vaccines
  • Discomfort or mild swelling at the injection site

Rare side effects, such as an allergic reaction, may occur.  Your pet may experience symptoms of a more serious reaction to the vaccine within minutes or hours of the vaccination.

Rare symtoms could include:

  • Swelling to face and legs
  • Repeated vomiting or diarrhea
  • Whole body itching
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Collapse

If your pet experiences any of these rare symtoms, you should contact your veterinarian or an emergency vet clininc immediately, as your pet may require additional medical treatment.  See the Emergency Numbers tab for local Emergency Veterinary Clinic phone numbers for your area.
