Suspected post-vaccinal acute polyradiculoneuritis in a puppy

J S Afr Vet Assoc. 2001 Jun;72(2):96. doi: 10.4102/jsava.v72i2.626.

Abstract

A 4-month-old German shepherd puppy developed hindquarter weakness after vaccination with a multivalent vaccine. This is suggestive of post-vaccinal polyradiculoneuritis. To date, only 1 similar case has been reported, which may be due to the under-reporting of suspected adverse drug reactions.
