Well, all ours get Galaxy D and yes, one of our five, Xena, had a
life-threatening anaphylactic reaction to it. She almost died -- it was a
good thing we were still right there in the vet's office when it
happened. She is no longer being vaccinated. None of the others have had
any reactions to the Galaxy, though interestingly, Gabrielle did have a
milder reaction to the *rabies* shot last time around (she's five, so this
was her fifth time). She vomited and was very lethargic for a while, but
after about an hour and a shot of antihistamine she was okay.
