Bordetella in the nose killed my cat in 1 wk. Her kidneys gave out. Just the other day I took my 7 month old puppy to get Bordetella shot because I needed to board her. She was so sick and would not let me touch her that night. It took 4 days and I ended up canceling my trip to care for her. She is better but the place they injected her has a hard mass. I will never get this shot or put in the nose again for any pet. I should have learned 10 years ago when my cat died of kidney failure just after getting Bordetella in her nose. Please dont get this shot. Forge documents if you need to board your pet before doing this one. My puppy is not out of the woods. The hard mass from the shot may very well turn into cancer. I’m just sick.
"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
I just had my second in just under two months for an issue at L5/S1 in my back. I suffer from both degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis AND i have a bulging disc there. So, it’s been going on off and on since about 2012 and in total, I’ve had five injections now. They have helped for a period of time but certainly not permanent. And PT has not helped at all. My doctor has told me that because it’s at L5/S1, insurance will outright deny coverage for surgery UNTIL we’ve tried basically every other remedy including the injections. So, I’m at a loss. The pain is absolutely debilitating and pain meds don’t work either so what is a person to do???
