[RC] Vaccinations - Lynda K Thompson

I have always given the spring 5 way shot in the neck and never had any
problems until last year with a new horse.  He became severely swollen
and very sick.  He could barely lift his head.

So, fast forward to this year and I decided to take them to the vet to
have it done to rule out anything I might have done wrong.  I told the
vet what happened last year to the new guy and asked him to give them in 
the butt(down the back a little bit).  He did and the horses got WNV in
one side and the 5-way in the other side.  To make a long story short
both of the horses could hardly walk about 1 1/2 days after the shots on
the WNV side.  I did give bute and they were fine in 2-3 days.  So, I
will probably go back to giving shots myself and stick with the neck.
