My 16 month old (soon to be bred ... in 1 week)Holstein heifer recieved a Bar Vac 7 vaccination on Saturday. I gave it to her subcutaneously in her neck area. She is developing a lump. I wiped her neck down with alcohol before ai stuck her, so I thought the injection was aseptic enough. Is this a normal reaction? Last year she got real sick with the first round of shots, had no reaction with the second round 1 month later. She didn't (and still doesn't) act sick; just has the lump.

I picked up an Ivomec injectable for her today, but should I wait before I give it to her? I didn't think the lump was a big deal, so I didn't mention it to the vet today. When she has had IM shots, she sometimes gets a lump. She did receive a 3 way IM on Saturday today. It seems bigger this evening and he has Wed. off, so I thought I'd ask all of you.

Is there anything else I should do to get ready before I breed her? I'm going to ask the vet about scour guard. She is in great shape in all other ways. Thanks again!

Of little comfort, but sometimes they dvelop lumps from vaccinations. Normally they will go away within a couple of weeks. But we hae some older cows that still have a lump from their original shots several years ago. No lumps from any of the later vaccinations, just that first round. And not all of them got lumps that time.

i've seen our vet give ivomec to show steers under a front leg so if there is a lump it won't be noticeable.
