Lydia, my Snowball was also pre-dosed with Benedryl before his rabies vaccination. We also didn't make it home and had to go back to the office ... and, more than once that afternoon.

Snowball's story is in the new vaccine forum ... just in case you would like to read more of the details.

I'm sorry your Bayleigh had a an adverse reaction, too. Snowball is now legally waived from any further rabies vaccinations.

I, and Sue--who knows so much on this issue, have both warned against advanced dosing of Benadryl which only masks symptoms that would be in the best interest of the pup to recognize ASAP for a true anaphylactic reaction. Please carefully consider this advice when vaccinating your babies.

I gotta say, my chihuahua Emilio had the Rabies vaccine when he was 6 months old. 2 months later his ear pinna began to crust up and scab and the edges were peeling off leaving notches in his ears. I took him back to the vet and he was diagnosed with vasculitis.

So I researched it, and found the there is a type of vasculitis cause by a reaction to the Rabies vaccine. I went back to my vet and told him, and he argued that it had nothing to do with the vaccine. A few weeks later we once again went in for a re-check, and the vet said, "I guess he won't be getting the Rabies vaccine anymore". So I asked him and he had researched it and found what I said was true. But I was told it is "very rare" and he had never before seen it in his practice.

Fast forward about 6 years. I got Misha vaccinated at 7 months for Rabies. 2 months later and her ear pinna started crusting up and they itch intensley. Its not mange. The bridge of her nose started scabbing up. Guess what? You guessed it, vasculitis caused by the Rabies vaccine.

If it is that rare, how do 2 of my dogs have it???

Now I have the dilemma of treating the vasculitis with drugs that are not safe for a dog with MVD. But she is miserable.

We went with the advice of Snowball's vet (actually his former vets, too) in regard to the Benadryl. I'm wondering if they were thinking in Snowball's case (and, with his past history) that, if indeed he did have an adverse reaction (which he did) ... if the Benadryl would help cause the adverse reaction to be less severe. Even though at one point he had some difficulty breathing ... couldn't it have been even worse? When we returned to the ER the second time, he was, in fact, injected with another dose of Benadryl. And, on the third ER visit ... then he received a low dose of steroid, which then finally helped calm things down.

Sandi, I am only asking questions because Snowball has an appointment tomorrow (his dental is on Monday if his labs are okay tomorrow) and I would like to discuss this with his vet ... in regard to the Benadryl.

I appreciate your feedback, as I do with Sue, too.

Sandi, I'm really hoping you post Lisi's experience.

Marie, I definitely read your story and all the rest too. So sad what we, and our pups, have all had to go through. I'm adding Bayleigh's story too, and am very glad this study is going forward. Most assuredly, I will never allow another one of mine to be overvaccinated again. Bayleigh has the waiver as well, and we titer regularly.
