I'd think you'd want to give the antibiotic now and wait before giving the vaccine. That way the antibiotic will be more successful because the white blood cells will be focusing on whatever issue you are having requiring the antibiotic, not the vaccine.
Thats interesting! When I talked to my vet about it ( this has been a while ago) he said absolutly do not give antibiotics for atleast a week. Even killed virus. It messes with the body's ablility to react properly to the vac. you just gave.
Would love to hear others (vets) opinions. Get asked this question a lot.
I think it's a matter of HOW you asked the vet.
"Is it SAFE to vaccinate with Blackleg at the same time as an antibiotic shot?"
"Will my Blackleg vaccine work if I give an antibiotic shot at the same time?"
Giving the two shots will not HARM the animal, but vaccines will only give GOOD coverage on healthy animals. And, I do believe the antibiotics HURT the ability of the vaccine to help.
Yes, go ahead, it's cheap :lol2:
