Oh dear angelgirl, how awful, maybe the kitten was injected in the wrong place, maybe the injection went too close to the spine, :? or too deep, it might just be a temporary thing, i would ring the vet and maybe just take the kitten in poor little thing :(
Someone else might have a better idea,
How is the other kitten you got back, ? :)

Phone the vet and take her straight down. I had a stand up row once when my kitten died after vaccination. The vet said I must have dropped her and I replied no you must have injected into the spine.
It might however just be a reaction to the vaccine fingers xxxd and positive thoughts the vet can sort it out.
Penny :D

thankyou penny. the vet saw me straight away and said she would give her a tiny bit of metacam to see if that helps, there is no feeling at all in either back legs, sadly she said if she doesnt start walking by tomorrow there is nothing they can do. the other 2 kittens are fine after their vaccination. this kitten is eating a little bit but to be honest not really interested in anything, yesterday her temperature was fine this morning is 40 and she feels really hot. :(

Sounds like a bad reaction or it has crossed the body brain threshold and the kitten has brain damage. Think well. Hope she improves. Penny :D

the vet has just phoned me and asked if it was the kitten that was wriggling about, i said yes you had to put her in the carrier to vaccinate, the vet said that is the kitten i had to inject in the leg so it should be ok. i hope shes right and im massaging the legs gentley today so see if this helps. i asked the vet about giving metacam and she said it was to get the temperature down and if she still feels hot at 4pm today to take her back. the legs should improve tomorrow otherwise they can do tests to see whats going on. poor kitten only 9 weeks old and going through this all ready.
on a brighter note the boy i got back sunday is doing very well.

There is come back on the vaccine company when things go wrong with the vaccine or the vets do it wrong. You could get a second oppinion at another practice and ask their advice. I once took my kits day before they were 9 weeks and vet wouldnt do them said that i wouldnt have a case against them if something wrong with the vaccine. Really hope she picks up for you so worrying.

Oh angelgirl, i hope the kitten recovers, poor little thing :) :) the vet has used the excuse ithink,that the kitten was wriggling about, i am sure other kittens have been vaccinated that were wriggling about and been ok
I have only ever had a kitten vaccinated with the 3in 1 that had a bad reaction, i thought it was going to die,it was so lethargic, and the vet gave it another injection, it was fine after a couple of days, back to normal :)

If it is anaphylactic shock they can give a antihistamine injection and they should recover. Penny :D
