A. You should discuss this with the vet which vaccinated him. The symptoms you report are unusual after vaccination and more so if the vaccine is more than 7-10days previous but symptoms of difficulty swallowing and reduced appetite/thirst/urination in an older cat should be investigated regardless; blood and urine tests may be required to rule out internal causes. Your vet can contact the vaccine company if there is any link
