Observe Your Cat After He’s Given an Injection

Sunday, January 26, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

It’s not uncommon for a cat to have a reaction after receiving a shot. As you keep an eye on your pets condition and behavior, you may observe symptoms such as pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, a low fever or a reduced appetite.  These are generally mild reactions and rarely a cause for alarm. Serious reactions are unusual but not unheard of. If your recently vaccinated cat suddenly has a seizure, exhibits serious vomiting or diarrhea, or show signs of acute distress, there’s no time to waste. Don’t ever try to administer any pet medication on your own. Rush the animal to an animal hospital immediately. Your cat could be having a very serious reaction called anaphylactic shock. Quick action on your part could save you cats life.

Remember, your pets count!
