My dog, Molly, received the Lymes vaccine along with her regular yearly vaccines on a Wednesday. Sunday evening she died! She vomited the first night, went downhill, lethargic. Diarrhea and worse lethargy. Quit eating, quit drinking and then couldn't even stand or walk without help. Now she is dead and we are heartbroken!
My five month old puppy received a lyme shot 10 days ago and she's limping hasn't gotten any better. I called the vet and he says not to worry it will go away but nine days after a injection and her limping is concerning to me.
I will be contacting the vet again regarding this matter it's concerning me to see my puppy limping when she wasn't before. I will not be taking her any more for any lyme shots if these are the reaction she'd going to have after the shot..
The vets will always say it's nothing to worry about it will get better or come in so we can countine to pay for nothing because what will they do so our animals will not suffer from an injection.
Not right I'm not a happy person with this situation!!!!
Hello. My 5 1/2 year old cocker spaniel was fine. Went to vet Banfield for physical, they gave her Lyme vaccine, we live in CT. That night she started changing, sluggish, not eating. This went on for 3 days. Called vet. No worries wait 5-6 days after shot, next day Riley worst, would not get up out of bed, called vet and insisted I bring her in, they denied it's the Lyme vaccine, they wanted to do more blood work etc which was just fine 3 days before, I denied the blood work, They gave her antibiotics and non steroid anti inflammatory. Still denying any issues of vaccine. Riley seemed a little better with 3 days of anti inflammatory. This morning, Riley is shaking, can't move well at all. This is 9 days after shot. She went outside but almost couldn't make it up the deck steps. She use to run and jump and be happy, now she is shaking in pain! What do we do??
Hello, my dog is a three year old lab/Shepard mix, his name is Brock. He received his booster shot for Lyme disease two days ago. Since then he is not acting like himself. He normally is at my side, he is acting scared and is off by himself. It's breaking my heart, I even tried bribing him with treats, nothing is working.
I too my new two year old rescue dog in for a free vet check he recommended the lyne disease vaccination and after suffering with horrible Lyme disease myself bedridden for years and in wheelchair before they figured me out I jumped at this for my dog I asked if any bad side effects and if it's truly safe. One hour after the shot, she shakes and tremors in legs then bit me if I touch her backside where shot is. She won't get off couch or jump up she whining and acts in great pain. I cried when I did my research on it. OMG! What did I do to my pup. I'm so upset! This is horrible.
I took my Shih Tzu to get a lymes vaccine and that evening he wouldn't eat or play. The next day same thing I called the vet they said it was not the vaccine. Day 3 still the same so I took him for an ER visit to the vet. They stuck with not the vaccine ...I paid 325.00 for blood test and visit. went home with nausea meds that did nothing. How long will it take for my Pup to feel better. We will not get round 2 of the lymes.
After reading a few websites now we're convinced that our standard poodle had an allergic reaction to the shot for Lyme disease. The day after he had his shots he started not being himself. He couldn't even jump on the bed anymore and after he had a bath he was not even able to shake his body like he normally did and he stopped barking all this happen and it lasted about 1 week. He is five years, four months old and had the lyme disease shot every year for the past four years and this is the first time he had this kind of reaction but it scared us enough to where he's not going to be getting the shot ever again will just take other other precautions.
LYME VACCINE ADVERSE EFFECTS:
As dog owners that have watched our pets suffer from Lyme vaccine reactions and adverse effects, we need a collection of data. The data needs to be sent to American Veterinary Medical Association, American Kennel Club. My vet "pushes" it. This year it was included in vaccines at yearly physical. I found out that they received Lyme Vaccine when I paid bill. I have two Shelties. Foxy became lame in her right front leg after vaccine 2 years in a row. It resolved. The vet insists that "this is not due to vaccine as he has never seen this reaction. The next year the same reaction happened immediately after Lyme vaccination. Foxy was not to get the vaccine again. She got it again this year without my knowledge.
Shelly ( 2nd sheltie ) this year vomited profusely in vet office after vaccine. The injection site was swollen with discharge. She cries in pain. I contacted vet and going in today. Again VET DENIES THAT LYME VACCINATION COULD DO THIS. AND YES THEY PUSH THE VACCINE AND ADAMANTLY DENY THAT IT HAS SIDE EFFECTS.
AS PET OWNERS WE NEED TO COMPILE OUR PET'S adverse reactions and submit them to THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AND DEMAND A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION AND PUBLICATION OF ADVERSE REACTIONS SHORT AND LONG TERM.
I live in New England. We camp. Use Advantix 2 and have never had a tick. Yards can be safely treated without chemicals.
Very worried about Shelly. It is as though her entire body is painful to palpation, touch. THERE NEEDS TO BE CONSUMER AWARENESS . Do veterinarians report adverse effects of medications and vaccines as doctors and hospitals do?
My 8 month old GSD received the Lyme vaccination and within hours began limping and became lethargic. He became worse and returned to the vet the next day. He had a 106 temp and could not bear weight on his front leg. Was given an anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. It's been 2 days and he is slowly responding. Needless to say, he won't be getting the 2nd dose
After my yorkie had the lyme vaccine...I realize she has a hard lump at the spot of the vaccine...is it normal? - 2 weeks now 😢
My Golden Retriever had the Lymes vaccine and within two days she was lethargic, crying and could not get up by herself. After taking her to the vet they gave her aspirin saying they thought it was an ACL injury. A month later she was still not well, in fact worse. We had xrays for her hips and decided it was not hip displaysa. After going to another vet they decided it was due to the Lymes vaccine. It is attacking her. Her muscles in her legs would shake and she could not get up by herself. We have put her on prednisone and she is better however when we lower the dose to 1/2 pill every other day she goes back down hill, so then we have to go back up to the previous dose of 1/2 pill every day. We don't know if she will ever get off of the Prednisone. This has been going on since April 2016 and it is now the end of September. If anyone has any suggestions I would like to hear them.
Took both of our chihuahuas to Petsmart for their Sunday clinics where vaccines are much cheaper. We needed to get our dogs the lymes vaccine because we're taking them to the beach in a few weeks. Later that nite our one older chihuahua started acting different. The younger one is fine. She Didn't want any attention, was more scared than usual and slept under the bed instead of on the bed with us. She also is shaking non stop and screams if you touch any where near the injection site. It's been over 24 hours with no change. Is this normal? Or should I be worried!
On Thursday, April 2,2014 I brought my 11 year old Golden retriever to the vet for her wellness exam and was told she needed 2 vaccines. I told my vet that she still had her cough, and that she was not herself. She had an x ray in December and was diagnosed with a bronchial infection. She gave my dog the vaccines and prescribed a cough medicine.
On Monday, I returned to the vet as my dog was still acting unusual. She was not playing with any of her toys, not sleeping on my bed and when I woke up she was sleeping in a strange place. I went downstairs and she didn't follow me. She didn't eat her breakfast and then she wouldn't lay down for 1/2 hour. I took her back to the vet that morning.
They admitted her and put her on fluids, took blood work and told me that her anal glands were infected. They discharged her at 5:30 and said it was all caused from her anal glands. They prescribed Batril and Rimadyl.
Wednesday she still wasn't doing any better. She was pacing and panting a lot. Not eating. I kept calling the vet because we were still waiting for some of the results from the blood work. The vet kept leaving messages on my home phone. I called again left one last message never heard back. When I finally called back around 8pm, I was told she was gone for the day. I spoke to the on call Dr. She told me my dogs liver levels were elevated. I asked why she wasn't being treated for that? She said she would note the chart to have the Dr. call me first thing. I told her I wanted to come in first thing.
At this point my dog jumped on bed and was laying with me. I was petting her gently, trying to get her to sleep, when I looked down at my hand it was covered in blood. I at first thought it was a hot spot. I patted it gently with a tissue. It bled all night.
When I finally got her to the vet and they shaved the area it was swollen, purple and the size of a grapefruit. They did more blood work. Then said they didn't know what it could be. Possibly cancer, tumors etc... They said they recommended an ultrasound and referred me to another hospital.
I took her to the hospital. They admitted her. She had surgery and was in for 3 days. I believe it was the vaccines. I have not heard a word from my vet of 30 + years. My dog has a drain in the area that they operated on. Part of the skin may not be viable and we are waiting for the culture to come back. This is $4,000 later and I am not done with the expenses. Is there anything that I can do? At least get them to help with the cost?
My dog was sick. My vet never should have given her those vaccines given her age and the risks.
I just brought my 3 year old pug to get her Lyme Booster and every time she breaths she shakes, She is very tired and not moving is this normal?
Hope, B.c., Canada
My healthy 8 month old Male Boxer received his second Lyme Booster on Friday. Monday afternoon he began exhibiting the following symptoms: Lethargic like he had a seizure, rapid heart beat, high fever, arching of his back. We took him to the Vet Hospital were they performed blood work which came back fine, tested for tic-born illnesses which came back negative, performed x-rays but found nothing. They administered antibiotics and fluids, he had a seizure during the night which they administered seizure medicine for and also had to give him medicine to bring his rapid heart beat back to normal. The next day he went into cardiac arrest and died. They said the symptoms seemed to resemble toxin poisoning but he did not have any access to poison and no evidence was found that he got into something he shouldn't have. We believe these symptoms were a direct result from his 2nd Lyme Booster.
