Cancer from a Rabies Shot?

Cat Chat – Brought to You by Dr. Elsey’s (05-12-2021) #0041: Dr. Elizabeth answers Susan’s concern about the possibility of her cat getting cancer from the rabies booster that she fears her vet may insist upon — but she read in The Cat Bible might cause cancer at the injection site. Tracie asks if this is still true, since many years have passed since she researched and wrote the book — Dr. Elizabeth said things have changed since 15 years ago when cats were getting sarcoma at the injection site, but even now, weighing the risk/gain benefit of a vaccine depends on a cat’s lifestyle.
