First vaccination reaction

Q Leanne asks:

My two nine week old kittens have just received their first vaccinations. Both were incredibly docile afterwards, did not eat for at least 24 hours and were very sleepy and lethargic. After about 36 hours they appeared to be back to normal but little Murphy was sick about 12 hours after the jab. I am dreading taking them back for their second round in three weeks time! Is this a normal reaction?

Q Our vet says: It is normal for kittens to be a little bit quiet and off the food for a short time following vaccinations and you should be aware that this may be the case again following the second vaccines. Let the vet know that they had this reaction to the first vaccines. Adult cats are generally less affected in this way than kittens so for subsequent boosters as adults things will hopefully be a bit easier.
