Thanks for registering as a member. Your future posts won't need approval so post away.
Tell us more about your Tripawd, and why you are concerned about possible vaccine side effects. Is your pup undergoing chemotherapy? Older? Or immune compromised in some other way?
Vaccine side effects in dogs are relatively uncommon but of course they do happen sometimes. If you have concerns about any possible reactions, it's best to have a conversation ahead of time with your veterinarian, to see what can be done to avoid any problems.
We look forward to learning more about your pup.

thanks Jerry,,,, MY dog gsh just turned 6 will go to one of the vaccine sites tomorrow, for an off trial vaccine, if accepted,,, He has an osteosarcoma of the femur. Instead of amputation,, I chose cyber knife radiation.. He has had 3 rounds of chemo and zolendronate, with more to follow,,, I was wondering if any members vets suggested medicines,, etc that might alleviate the side effects received upon getting this new vaccination,

Oh, you mean one of the OSA Vaccine Trials.
Here are some recent posts concerning the OSA Vaccine:
And there has been some discussion in the fourms:
I know a couple pups here are in a vaccine study, you can post in one of the fourms topics above or send a Private Message (PM).

Very few dogs have received the vaccine, and the current extended field trial is largely, I believe, an effort to better understand and manage side effects of the vaccine (they know the vaccine works). The current protocol includes two hours of IV fluids with IV Rimadyl before the vaccine is administered to help reduce and control those side effects. Post vaccination, the dogs are monitored for six more hours to observe and treat immediate side effects as needed.
