Thanks for the responses. Yeah, I know its the vaccine and not the vet's fault but still pretty upset. Does anyone share the same experience and will the hair grow back? Thanks.

|Once the vet gave a Siamese cat of mine a penicillin shot and she almost died. I rushed her back and he gave her another shot just in time. It was terrifying. This is a cat that I had taught to do tricks, heel, sit, stay, down, roll over, and to use the potty.....she was the apple of my eye..... she was almost "dog like"|
A huge patch of fur fell off about the size of a Kennedy half dollar........the area was completely bald for almost a year and on the second shed it grew back but is was much darker then the rest of the hair in the area. Eventually the hair blended in a bit better, but I could always tell the outline.
