Please be aware that there's a ton of controversy surrounding the use of nosodes.


(from the article)
Like many others, I was excited too however, as I began to read and learn more about homeopathy, I made the personal decision not to use nosodes "instead of" vaccines. I don't feel that they work very reliably at all, and I consider the repeated administration of nosodes in a healthy animal to be dangerous. After all, you are introducing the energy of a disease, over and over and over, in an effort to prevent that disease. I personally feel that you can cause many of the same problems with nosodes used in this fashion as you do with vaccines!

I truly believe that the repeated administration of nosodes on a preventative schedule is dangerous and WILL induce disease in your dogs! Giving the epidemic remedy, be it a nosode or some other remedy, after exposure or during an outbreak, once or twice, will possibly be protective. But to put dogs on a regular schedule of prevention, giving the nosodes over and over, is superstition and is "from a place of fear or lack of understanding." Dr. Bernstein

With swelling I think there are a few things that come to mind and a few things that could be ruled out. Who is to say, and this was all new to your vet right? Vets are like doctors they do the best they can with what they know and have, still high regards to them!
Sometimes self education can come in very handy, have you thought on getting any books and reading up on what you want and how to get the best of it?

Rabies, parvo and distemper are killers. Prognosis with treatment is poor. I vaccinate for those. Lepto and coronavirus can be treated. If the vaccines were safe and effective, I would use them. Lepto is a bacterial infection. The vaccine for it has been known to kill puppies. The vaccine is not effective on many different strains. I will encourage people to reconsider use of this vaccine. The reason it is pushed is because Lepto is a disease that can effect humans. Coronavirus can be treated. The vaccine has caused issues in puppies. Treat the symptoms if the dog contracts the illness, it is safer than giving them the vaccine.

I think I mentioned tick disease earlier in this thread. Without a necropsy there is really no telling what caused this puppy to die. With a necropsy, the results can still be inconclusive. It was a terrible tragedy.

Im very sorry for your loss. Some of the symptoms sounded like Abbis but hers was a muscle related infection without so many vaccines. Do I think that the death is correlated to something the vet did, possibly. But I cant give you enough information for an explanation, sorry
