Default Kidney Disease and Aspirin

My 14 1/2 yr old cat was recently diagnosed with early Kidney Disease.
In the past, when given his yearly vaccines, he's always been given a
portion (I don't know how much) of an aspirin because he reacts very
badly otherwise - growling, hissing, etc. for 24-48 hours afterward
(this from a normally mellow cat). Once he started getting aspirin at
shot time, everything was fine. Anyway, now it's shot time again and my
vet (a new one, unfortuantely, as I moved) is saying he can't get
the aspirin because of the Kidney Disease. Is this true? Any other
suggestions?

Talk to your vet about the reasoning behind doing yearly vaccines. As it stands
now, many vets do NOT recommend yearly vaccines due to the problems with
vaccine sarcomas developing. (Cancer at the injection site.)

I would also look into finding out if your cat is having some type of allergic
reaction which is making him feel punky after the shots. Maybe spreading them
out, a week or two apart would be a good idea to help with reactions? A good
vet should be able to work with you to find a solution AND is not going to
insist on yearly vaccines for indoor cats.
