    DefaultOne Last Vet Report on Remington's Eye

    Saw a new vet today. It has been confirmed that the kennel cough (bordatella) vaccine caused Remington's uvitis and conjunctivitis. Vet has conferred with an eye specialist. Apparently this is not as rare as the first vet lead me to believe. The eye specialist is working with Vet #2 right now to determine how to proceed with future vaccinations as they don't want this happening again. (me neither).

    On a good note, his corneal swelling is almost completely down (one small area is still swollen) and the cloudiness is also almost gone (it is regulated to the swollen area, just below his pupil now).

    What a nightmare. I'm glad Rems is doing better and glad I have great vet support to get to the bottom of things.

    That sounds really good. I'm glad you know the cause. How long til the cloudiness goes away? Can he see out of the cloudy eye?

    Linda - I am glad the outlook for Remi is good. I sure learned something from reading your post. We've had all of our pups vaccinated for Bordatella and our vet has never mentioned that there could be a reaction that would affect our pups eyes. In fact, the recommendation was to do the vaccine every six months because we show our dogs and you never know what you will encounter at shows. Next trip to the vet I am asking about this. Thank you for posting such useful information. Betsy

    Phew! This has been quite a week with Remi. Let us know what they say about future/other vaccines. I'm under the impression there are pre-treatment protocols you can take, but I don't know much about them. Interested in what they recommend.

    At any rate, glad he is getting better! ;D

    Yes, Remington can see out of his eye.

    Most likely will will have to pre-med him with steroid shot before giving ANY vaccines in the future, and then hold him and watch. I think I will be definitely asking about titers. I don't want to put him through this again if I can help it.

    Just wanted to clarify... the first vet I saw said, "this just never happens"

    Now the new vet and eye specialist are telling me it happens, it's rare, but it does happen.

    Also, this is NOT contagious, as my first vet said it was. That was a relief to learn I'm sure Magnum and Ruger would have had it by now, if it was contagious.
