Wait, you paid $350 for yesterday?!
I would be P.O.ed too!
I've never had any vet come out and say "hey, this vac combination could make your cat sick", but when confronted with a cat that has reacted badly vets will always say that it happens often.
This is pretty much one of those topics that you have to push the vet to discuss with you and answer honestly. Doctors do this, too. I think they worry that they'll scare off their customers if they're blunt and honest about everything.
My vet doesn't do the 3 year rabies, yet (county doesn't accept it). Many on here will warn that it's more likely to cause side effects - some have even said that their vets did tell them this, so not all vets blow people off.
I'm glad that you have an ER option and plan if needed. I hope they do get better before you need to resort to more vet care, though.
