Side effects include:
- discomfort and local swelling at vaccination site
- mild fever
- diminshed appetite and activity
If these side effects do last more than a few days, please contact us at 586-293-3922
A small, firm swelling under the skin may develop at the site of a recent vaccination and should disappear in a couple of weeks. If it persists for more than three months, or grows in size, please contact us.
More serious, but rare side effects, such as allergic reactions, may occure within minutes to hours after vaccination.

These allergic reactions can be life-threatening and are medical emergencies. Contact our clinic immediately, as your pet may require medical treatment.
