    Default Lump after Rabies shot

    So on Monday we went to the vet for an ear infection. We were also due for some shots that we got done as well. This was a new vet we went to that my mom had gone to for the last 10 years. (THe girl who works there has 2 bullies) I dont like them b/c I feel they care more about the money than the acutal animal. Anyway Brutus now has a lump on his back where the shot was given. I called @Twice Bev at 9 am this morning frantic thinking something was wrong! Thank you so much Bev b/c I was so scared thinking something was wrong. I called the vet and asked if they could see him to check it out and they told me sure but its going to be $38 consult fee What you gave him the shot and we just spent $400 on MOnday really??? Anyway after speaking with Bev and our normal vet they advised to keep cold compress on it and it should go down. Its normal for some dogs to get this after rabies shots. Boy was I scared.

    I figured I would post this for anyone else who has the same problem after vaccines.

    Our vet was on vacation and we needed ear meds I trusted this vet b/c my moms dogs have been going there for 10 years and she has never had any problems. Another bad idea of mine <----Oh this one is going to give me really bad headaches!

    @Sherry, our guy that got the lump ended up having to change brands of rabies shot. The lump lasted months, was right at the injection site, and about the size of a marble!

    The first time Brutus had the rabies shot this didnt happen! Its bigger than a marble and its no really round more rectangluar. I have been using cold compress and its gone down a little.

    I'm glad it's going down some. The doctor either stuck a muscle or used a brand that didnt agree with Bru. Either way I'm happy he's ok

    For me, her name was Abby
