Q. Tried to vaccinate my dog with a solo jec 9 vaccine but only gave the dilutent part and forgot to mix vaccine. Any cause for alarm?
DR. TRISTAN WILHELM, DVM
A. No cause for alarm here. The diluent portion of that vaccine is likely actually a part of the vaccination (usually the Leptospirosis portion). It isn't a major health concern but you did not give the vaccine you intended to give. You should call the vaccine manufacturer and discuss the situation with them and see what the recommend you do. It is always a good idea to call your veterinarian to discuss any vaccines you intend to give so they can help you decide what vaccines are appropriate for your pet.
