|TommyB681||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|

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.

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?

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

I have no insight as to the reason you lost your beloved pup but I do send my sincere condolences. It is so hard to see them sick and do everything you can think of to help but then to lose them in the end. May you meet again at the rainbow bridge

About 3 years ago, we almost lost my wonderful mom-in-law. She'd been bitten by a tick while working in her garden. 14 days in the hospital - 11 of which she still does not remember. I got on the horn with 2 of my sis-in-laws & begged them to have her tested for Lyme disease. One of them pinned the doc against the wall & inSISted she be tested. (my kinda person ). Sure enough - ticks caused it.
So I'm waaay more concerned with the bugs... Now, if we could just copme up with a 'test' to determine whether or not you have a good vet!

What works in your little corner of the world may not work in another person's.
To the OP, discuss with your vet the need for lepto and corona. It is my understanding that corona is a puppy illnesses and puppies over 6-8 weeks are not susceptible, and again that's for us here in the US.
Things might be different over there.
I'd be much more concerned about the possibility of tick-borne illness and also this should be discussed with your vet, as medications that work here may not work over there.
You may want to use tick repellent in your yard as well, and avoid areas that are known for having ticks.
I do think finding a different vet would be helpful.
