Re: [RC] vaccinations - Susan Garlinghouse

All the recent talk about vaccine reactions has me wondering.....   do the
reactions get reported to the manufacturer by veterinarians?

The manufacturers have a system to report those kinds of things, but
overworked schedules being what they are, I'm sure there are a lot of
reactions that don't get reported, especially if they're relatively mild.

I know things are sometimes blown out of proportion on the internet, but
seems as if there are more reactions this year than

I wonder how much of that is just the power of the internet rather than any
real increase in reactions.  I do think that giving the multivalent
vaccinations is a lot more of a whack to the immune system and more likely
to cause a reaction of some sort.  How much of a problem it really is over
the single antigen vaccines, you'd have to ask one of the vets that have
been out in practice.  They haven't even printed up my degree quite yet.
