    Default 12 week vaccination reaction

    My Maggie had her 12 week vac yesterday. Today is seedy and uncharacteristically quiet.
    Rang Vet, waiting for callback.
    I didn't realise that some pups get a reaction, I wish I had been told, worrying.

    I personally wouldnt stress about it too much.

    There is a reason fo rbeing a bit funny after vax's...something to do with the disease and immune system but I dont remember the exact cause.

    If she doesnt come right tomorrow then I would probably start wondering a bit more.

    Thanks
    Vet said to bring her in tomorrow if she gets any worse.
    It is awful seeing my normally manic pup sitting and looking sooooo sad.
    I think she is improving, she asked to go outside and is looking more alert.
    Vet said to give her a tiny bit of cooked chicken and rice and see if she can cope with it.
    I was a worrywart when my kids got sick and am no better with the pup!

    Lala's is good advice, even some babies get a slight reaction to vaccinations ( ie temp, a bit off colour), if you are still concerned tommorrow take her back tommorow, but is pretty normal.

    Yup, happens to my dog.

    And me.

    My reaction to tentus vax lasted two weeks - felt like someone had beaten my arm and shoulder up with a baseball bat.

    And flu vax reaction is similar. But it's so nice not to get the full impact of the flu when it goes round.

    And it took 2 years for my arm reaction from the TB shot to go away and when i got mantou tested the next time - it hadn't taken ie there was no reaction when there should have been a reaction... not fun.

    You can try giving her some vitamin C tablets if you have some about. Not multi vitamin etc, just plain C. Vaccines place great strain on immune systems, sometimes vit C can give that system an extra boost and make them feel better.

    Dosage is not an issue. Excess vit C is safely excreted through urine.

    Thanks I will keep that n mind
    She has improved amazingly this evening. I hope it isn't like this for the 16 week one!
    It does rather harden my resolve to keep her safe though, if that was a mild dose I would hate to see a full one.

    Farrview my puppy went through a similar thing and he was very sleepy and tied for a day or too, but was back to normal in no time.
    All the best.

    Thanks
    It reassured me to read your comments.
    Today she is back to her normal madly chewing self and ravenously hungry so I am trying to feed her small amounts more often in case her tummy is still a bit odd. We have to do a 4 hour journey (plus lots of stops) today so I am relieved she is OK.

    I have my young dogs from puppy on on Vit C...It is also good for joints and just any other bugs that are around..........I Socialise from day one at my place, so that is another reason I am generous with the Vit C. We had a huge break-out of Kennel Cough in Albury when Katy was a puppy.....Most of the puppy classes, Kennel Club and all the other places we go. We did not have any problems, even though Katy was only 10 weeks old......

    Next time pre vaccination, use the Vit C.........I use Ester C Powder for my dogs and horses
