Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals
In the case of accidental self-injection, seek medical advice immediately and show the package leaflet or the label to the physician.
Transient and small thickening or nodule, approximately 5 - 10 mm in size, may be observed at the injection site and disappear within 2 to 6 weeks without treatment. Occasionally, systemic reactions (hyperthermia, anorexia, lethargy) may occur within one or two days after vaccine administration.
Where Nobivac FeLV has been used to reconstitute cat vaccines in the Nobivac range containing feline calicivirus (F9 strain), feline rhinotracheitis virus (G2620A strain) and/or feline panleucopenia virus (MW-1 or Bristol strain) prior to inoculation, a small nodule at the site of vaccination is frequently observed. It can persist for up to 18 days post-inoculation. Occasionally, the nodule may be painful for up to 6 days after injection. A transient rise in body temperature or lameness may occur and last up to 3 days post vaccination. In some cases, a slight dullness or reduced appetite may be observed for up to 1 day post vaccination.
In the rare event of hypersensitivity reaction following vaccination, administer an antihistamine, corticosteroid or adrenaline without delay and by the most-immediate route.
The frequency of adverse reactions is defined using the following convention:
- very common (more than 1 in 10 animals treated displaying adverse reactions)
- common (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 100 animals treated)
- uncommon (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 1,000 animals treated)
- rare (more than 1 but less than 10 animals in 10,000 animals treated)
- very rare (less than 1 animal in 10,000 animals treated, including isolated reports).

He had terrible swollen paws and open mouth very irritable had to take him to emergency vet . Got pain killer and anihistamin today very slow feet slightly better how long will this last he has eaten .
It is very unusual to get a reaction to this vaccination at all, but it can certainly happen. When it does occur, it is usually over within 24 hours with some treatment, though occasionally may take longer. Your vet will have to help if this is needed.
