[SIDE EFFECTS] Once my CHI received a 3 year vaccine he is now not eating or drinking and can hardly walk and seems to be in great pain. His legs are wobbly and starting to give out. I need help. The vet took xrays and blood work and said nothing came out negative.

[SIDE EFFECTS] My 4 year old perfectly healthy Shorkie Shi tzu yorkie mix went for her rabies and distemper shot. She is never sick 6 days after her shots I noticed she was walking funny and off to the side. I felt a welt on her back and brought her right to the vet. They said it would go away in 1 month to 2 months that it was swelling that occurs from the shot. The next day she was ok but 1:30 in the morning started throwing up till about 4:30 am.. Sunday all day she was sluggish and shaky and didn't move off the couch. She only vomited once that day. Monday we went right to vet were they said it was not from shots they didn't know what it was but will give her antibiotics and something to settle her stomach. She took the 3 medications Monday and Tuesday to see no improvement. Tuesday morning she vomited again. Went back to vet they gave her some fluids and a shot and told me to keep with the medication. Wednesday still no improvment. Thursday back at vet for ultra sound. Now her blood came back good , her ultra sound came back good but showing imflammation and spasms going on in the belly. They gave me predisone to give her. Still no major improvement. Her bowel came back negative and urine although very concentrated came back with some protein in it. He told me to wait two weeks until she feels better and have it rechecked because of the concentration it might be showing protein.
I am very concerned because years ago I had a maltese which received the same shots and 4 days later was unresponsive and throwing up and had to be put to sleep.
It has already cost me over 1000.00 this week for no diagnosis or improvement of my dog. I will tell you this she will never get another vaccination again. To me she never goes around other dogs and is only 8lbs. she is with me always and I think it is unnecessary to have to vaccinate when they are small house dogs.Posted by Gayle (Gosford, Nsw Australia) on 11/02/2011
[SIDE EFFECTS] Yesterday I took my Shiztzu X maltese for her annual injections for C4 and Heartworm etc.
Within 1 hr she became withdrawn and wouldn't come when called for dinner. She slowly walked with her tail between her legs but wouldn't eat( she is usually a very outgoing dog that will wolf down her food, any food ) She then started 'shivering' even though the room temperure was quite warm. I rang the vet, took her back, he said a slight reaction to one of the shots. She then started breathing rapidly, as though panting with her mouth closed. I rang the vet this time getting the after hours vet, was told the same thing. The panting went on for 2 hours. I slept with her right up next to me checking on her consently. Around 5am she wanted to go outside and had Diarrhea. She hasn't hadn't any water for 18 hrs now so I'm spoon feeding it to her, I'm worried about dehydration. She hasn't become any worse but I'll ring the vet again and take her back. Also she screams when I touch the area the C4 was injected. The heartwom injection was given in a different area. I'm from Australia.
