Squeaky used to react to the vaccine each time. He would be lethargic for 3 days. One day my vet tested him and found he was positive. Both he and Stripes tested positive that day. The vet determined Squeaky was a "carrier" and carried the disease in his bone marrow. He was never sick until his final 3 weeks. He lived to age 22. I adopted the boys in 1983.The boys were tested in 1985...years before I knew much about all of this. Stripes died in 1989. He was 16.
Coco has reacted to her last 2 rabies vaccinations. I will never vaccinate her for rabies again.

The vet checked her over and decided she was fine today, although he couldn't find the site of the injections as he wasn't the one who gave them to her and being a persian it's difficult to see anything through all that hair. I just hope this resolves. I'm reluctant now to have our newest girl immunized. Both are indoor cats but having lost our baby Boo last March to feline leukemia and FIV I was afraid to not have them vaccinated.
