Hey guys
So yesterday I took my pup to the vet to get his final shots and rabies vaccine. He is almost 15 weeks old. Since yesterday after the vets visit, he has been panting heavily, droop eyes (from the bottom eye lid). House is quite cold so I believe he is not panting because it is warm. Also, several times in the last 24 hours, he burps then lip smacks but nothing comes out. He was quite gassy last night I guess(smelled like poop in his crate but he didn't poo), I never heard or smelt him gassy before. He is eating and drinking fine as usual. He is a little bit less energetic today when playing outside. Has anyone experienced this with their pup and may know what it is or could it be a reaction to the vaccines ? Tried searching some threads that are similar but was out of luck. I was reading about the symptoms, says it could be bloat, but I doubt he has bloat as his stomach doesn't look bloated/puffed. Not sure if it is something to worry about to take him to the vet. I already booked the closest appointment which is in 2 days just in case. Thanks.

Rabies should NEVER be given with any other vaccinations.

What OTHER shots was he given?

I'd be looking for a new vet!

What state are you in?

Moms
Dam it I told him can I have it at another time and he said don't worry it is fine.. I should've stopped him right there :/

He had his DA2PP (basic shots) on February 10th and had the final basic shots + rabies yesterday.

You need to report this to your vet AND find out where to legally report this reaction to authorities in Canada.

Your vet will most likely say this wasn't a reaction.....typical response.

"Your veterinarian has a legal and ethical obligation to fully inform you about the risks and benefits of any vaccination. Read what an attorney and veterinarian has to say about a vet's obligation of Informed Consent."

This is where to report reactions in the USA:
Report adverse reactions (side effects) of vaccines here: This is a new page from the AVMA: http://www.avma.org/animal_health/reporting_adverse_events.asp
On-line reporting form: https://web01.aphis.usda.gov/CVB/adverseeventreport.nsf/Adverse%20Event%20Report%20Form?OpenForm You'll need to get a lot of the information from your vet. Do not expect your vet to submit the report. Underreporting is commonplace.

More reporting information and options: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_health/vet_biologics/vb_adverse_event.shtml

I believe it is a reaction.

All dogs respond differently to vaccinations.

Some not at all, some immediately, some not for weeks or months.

Some respond with anaphylactic shock, some off their feed for a day, some lethargic, some have swelling in vaccination site etc. So many different things.

Read the many articles on the Dog 4 Dogs site.

Thanks a lot for your helpful advice! I just ordered the liver toxin and purchased one similar to vaccinosis in my local wellness pet shop. Poor guy his eyes have been droopy all day and he started to drool a lot in the last 2 hours (we were playing towel tug earlier this morning and his tooth fell off and started bleeding so it might be of this). I can't believe some vets don't warn before giving or say anything... I will report this vet, hopefully something can be done about it.

It's entirely possible that your pup feels bad and is running a fever due to teething. That is a very common "side effect" of teething in dogs AND
humans.

It's not always about the vaccines.

Hi, just wondering how you treated your puppy after the reaction to the vaccine? I saw your dog ended up getting droopy eyes etc, my dog looks to have had a hyper sensitive reaction to his annual vaccine and first off had extremely bad lethargy and we ended up getting him on steroids and now when he comes off the steroids he starts to get inflammation in his eyes and his bottom lids droop. Many thanks, Stephen
