    Default Stupid vaccinations

    My poor baby had a reaction to his shots today. His shoulder is swollen to the size of a tennis ball!!

    Brutus had something similar after his rabies shot the last time. It wasnt on the side but on the shoulder blade and it was a hard lump! It went down after a couple days or so! Poor baby!

    Belly had the same with puppy shots.. But it was her face that swelled. She always gets a Benadryl shot now before vaccines.

    We had to take him back right away. They gave him a shot of Diphenhydramine, and also sent us home with chewable Rimadyl for pain relief! Poor guy! It's so tender we can't even pet him on that side.

    For this, and many other reasons, I do not vaccinate my adult dogs.

    Warm compresses and Benadryl do wonders. I look at it differently though. Imagine how sick he would've gotten if he had contracted the actual disease the vaccinations were protecting him from.

    I know my grandkids get pain reliever before their shots. I bet Gretzky will be better with a little preventative treatment next time.

    Good for you, I do the same as I'm home mostly (disabled), do not go to dog parks
    or other places around animals and have a privacy wood fence. They've proven most
    vacs last much longer than time frame given, you can ask for their titiers to be drawn,
    it tells you what their levels are and if a shot is needed...most times not.

    For my kittens & puppies, I do not give the heavy hitters at one time but space them
    out. I have an indoor cat, 13 y/o that got all her kitten shots & that's it, she's never
    been ill except from a reaction from Frontline's Flea treatment when my dogs brought
    them indoors during a horrendous outbreak of fleas. She almost died so now I use NO
    chemicals on her at all and won't on any of my animals unless it was a absolute must.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Aww poor baby, but it will go down and Benadryl can also help. Vaccinations can sometimes cause small reactions or discomfort even in people, but the benefits far outweigh the temporary reactions, as the diseases they prevent could be far worse or even kill your dog. Feel better Gretzky, and don't worry Mama, he'll be back to himself in a day or so.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
