Hello,

Well, within 24 hours of vaccination, it wouldn't be atypical for there to be a decrease in appetite. But, I am bothered that she is refusing to drink.

If you can take her temperature ideally using a digital thermometer and doing it rectally, anything over 103.0 would warrant a more immediate vet examination.

Also, double check the skin to ensure there are no hives or welts on the body.

Of course, the loss of appetite and thirst may not even be related to the vaccines at all, so close observation is warranted.

To try and stimulate thirst you can try giving gatorade, pedialyte, or even adding some canned tuna water to the water (change frequently as it will spoil).

Hope that information helps

Dr. Andy
