Thread: Puppy Reaction to Vaccine??

  1. #11

    Default

    I would be taking the dog back to the vets. I have heard of very bad reactions to vaccinations and any slight reaction, my dogs would be going back to the vets

    I believe you can also report it to the people that make the vaccinations, you can let them know the details of the injection, and what reaction your dog had.

    I do agree, I never picked up around the stomach either. Mine had late vaccines at about 5 months but all was ok afterwards.

    The vet that did Teddy's second lot was a night mare. She has been a vet for many years but she was rough as guts.

    She had many attempts, she missed him the first to times and kept pricking him with the needle. At the time Teddy had barely any hair around his neck and he had a lump and bruise afterwards. He was also bleeding.

    We reported her and have switched to another vet from the same practice..

    Minor reactions to vaccines are common.

    This is a really good website written by a very good vet. It has a section on what to expect after a vaccination and what you should and shouldn't worry about.

    When Mia had her puppy needles, she was a bit flat for a day or so afterwards, but you have to remember how you feel if you get something like a flu injection. It is a small amount of the virus' they're putting in, to enable your body to fight them off.

    When Jack was given his last yearly needle, he had a decent lump on the back of his neck for a few days, and you could tell it was tender.

    If all else fails check back with your vet if you're worried.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks so much for your responses to my post.

    Jax was pretty flat for about 3 days after his jab, but since yesterday has seemed much happier and the yelping has stopped so hopefully it was just from some bruising from the injection.

    Reading your responses definitely helped me feel a bit calmer about the whole thing...i think the main problem was that my vet said he shouldn't really react much to the vaccine!! obviously this piece of info was not quite right...

    glad your puppy is feeling better.

    I've had plenty of pups to the vet for their injections and my current two are the only ones that have ever reacted - large lump but no other symptoms.

    Having said that it was done by a young vet, who seemed a bit all thumbs??

    OMG, I have heard from ppl experiences like this with vets, which is very sad.

    IMO a good vet is one who can vaccinate the dog without the dog even knowing it's been done.
