http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anaphalaxis

Adjuncts
Antihistamines (both H1 and H2), while commonly used and assumed effective based on theoretical reasoning, are poorly supported by evidence.

Apparently there is a difference of opinion among professionals on whether antihistamines actually help prevent true anaphylactic reactions.
Since I am not a vet I chose to follow my vet's advice---maybe she is wrong? I don't know. I am not looking to lay blame. I just want Lisi to be ok.
You can imagine now that I am fearful of giving her ANY vaccines. I need to find out why she reacts to two completely different kinds of injections?

I would definitely stick to titerering if you can for Lisl. I hope it is available in Greece. The law and rabies is another matter

Get will little Lisl

I understand your feelings Sandi. So much conflicting info out there. My Vet does pre-med with Rabies if needed. He is all I have to go by. Ya know I would find out if it was thermisol free. Reason I say this is bec a pharmacist told me when I got my shingles vac that it was a thermisol free shot. I was surprised to hear him say that, and told him I have heard of it only with my pets shots. He said it can cause severe reactions in dogs too. Just sharing.

Life in the US is so different than here:
1. There is no possibility of titers here in Greece---I have checked.
2. There is no TF vaccine available here in Greece---Lisi's shot was due this Sun. & if I am one day late & then vaccinate---she can not travel for 30 days. It had to be done. I had put if off long enough while I searched for a TF vaccine.
3. There is only a l yr. rabies available due to the law which requires a yearly vaccination.

It is clear that I need to find out WHY Lisi reacts to vaccines of different types (Rabies & Lepto so far). I am fearful of all vaccines now because of our experience.

Thank you all so much for your prayers.

I am going to call an early quit for tonight as it has been a stressful few hours. Tomorrow is another day! Big hugs to all.

Sandi, I just saw your post and am praying that Liesl is doing better. I know how scary it is when your baby has any kind of reaction to a vaccine. Heidi had a similar reaction to a distempter vaccine. She got so sick on the car ride home from the vet that we turned around and went right back. Never allowed her to have a distemper shot after that. Will they allow you to get a waiver so you never have to go through this again?

Sounds like you are stuck between a rock and a hard place I think you will have to find out more about exemptions. Finding out what the allergy is won't be easy. I don't know if they can do skin testing for the compounds used. Seems daunting.
