This comes from total ignorance of how the vaccine is made, but could it
possibly have been that the manufacturer had not properly "killed" the virus
in this particular batch? Whatever happened, scary, but it's good that the

Wow, that is really scary, I think I do remember you posting about this a
while ago. Did the manufacturer ever give any info after the vaccines were
sent back? Any explanation as to why the tests would be affected when the
veterinary world is told they won't?
