She had a reaction to her second puppy shots this am :(

Threw up all the way home and then her eyes puffed up so bad she could hardly see!

Gave her some Benadryl as per the vets orders...now she's sleeping...

Relax. It's only a small setback.
Poor baby dog! Some time, I'll have to tell you the story of Harry our former Westie neighbor. Meanwhile, take care of little Angel. Hope she gets over the reaction quickly.

Oh no...I hope she's alright. Are you talking the Parvo shots? So what do you do if she can't take those, do they have an alternative?

According to the vet, when she goes for her final booster, they'll give her an anti-allergy shot before they give her the vaccine. And I told them they can't give her the rabies at the same time.

Lee Anne - I sure hope Angel is recovering quickly!

What your vet wants to do is the best thing. My little Stormy is so tiny that the vet will not give her more than one shot at a time. Her first shot she was barely a pound and the vet gave her a shot of Diphenhydramine 20 minutes prior to her shot to minimize the chance of any reaction. Worked like a charm. Now that she's a little bigger she does fine without the Diphenhydramine, but we always wait at least 20-30 minutes afterwards at the vet to make sure there is no reaction.

Angel is much better now! Her eyes aren't puffed up at all anymore. I'm gonna look into maybe not getting her last set of shots if they aren't really necessary.

Is it a parvo shot? If so our vet told us the final booster is recommended but not necessary... Glad Angel is better - give her a smooch and a scritch from me and the Yorkies! Lovey dubby

That's good to hear Kelly...I really don't want to put the poor girl through another day like she had today.

It was the parvo shot...and something else too maybe....don't they mix about 3 different things with these boosters?

There are shots that are combo shots and shots that are single shots - all depends on what the vet uses. Stormy had a combo shot through the breeders vet - I think it's called Univac-5 - and just single shots since from our vet.
