Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

How old is your cat? Is this the first leukemia vaccine he's had? What exactly is he doing?

Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 1 year ago.

Any vomiting or hives or facial swelling?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi, he is 3 years old. He was very lethargic and not acting like himself. No vomiting, hives. Hard to tell if he has facial swelling. Seems better this am. Still not quite himself
Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 1 year ago.

Okay. Lethargy, decreased appetite, hiding, and sleeping a lot are common side effects from vaccines, and are not concerning unless they last for longer than 36 hours or so. If he is eating today and starting to act better, I would not worry and I would just ride it out. If he is still very lethargic by tomorrow, I would see a vet.
