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Within 1 hr she became withdrawn and wouldn't come when called for dinner.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.

My 2 year old Dachshund was vaccinated yesterday and has the same thing. He first vomited, face got swollen, and his limbs became cool to the touch. He now has fever and can't seem to do anything to get comfortable. He is absolutely miserable. I am also concerned about the loose area under his chin. My Oscar is the sweetest little guy around and after yesterday, he doesn't even act like the same dog... I am extremely sad.

I gave my 7 year old Mini Schnauzer (Cleo) a Parvo/Distemper injection. Within about an hour she started violently itching, she also huge welts at the injection point and down her entire back. I gave her a benedryl and put her a lukewarm bath. The itching subsided. A few hours later she started itching again and again we put her in the lukewarm bath and the itching subsided again and the bumps went away. Strangest thing ever. Her heart was beating really fast, but her breathing wasn't labored. Since the bumps went away and the itching subsided, we decided not to take her to the Vet, but needless to say I was not able to sleep at all, I stayed awake watching her all night for any changes.

I am sorry, I now know what I thought was impossible. Two siblings, a boy and a girl got their shots. The girl vomited for a week then starting losing weight fast and stopped eating. Her gums and ears turned yellow (liver problem). Shortly after, her brother started having the same symptoms. He was put on anti-biotics. He hasn't gotten better, won't eat, won't defecate, won't move, won't pee, nothing. We are saddened that tomorrow we take him to be euthanized because his liver is failing. His sister, however, is finally eating small amounts and getting slowly better. This is atrocious!

My female Yorkie has been given DHPP C vaccinations every year for years at the insistence of my vet. (if you don't get the shot, you can't board at that particular vet), -I didn't want her to have the innoculation at her visit 3 months ago-I wanted her to have a titer test, but the vet told me the titer test was very expensive and she would be protected by the innoculation and he talked me into the innoculation.

She has now been diagnosed with Lymphoma (by needle biopsy and I got a second opinion with repeat biopsy). (9 yrs. 9 mo. old and 5 pounds). She has totally healthy heart, lungs, etc. and always acted like a puppy. The vet oncologist I have for her now told me that Lymphoma is rare in Yorkies and she has up to 9-12 months to live. She is now on chemo and prednisone. This is a loving, beautiful, active dog that will be taken from me because the vet assured me the innoculation was safe. The vets do it for the money. That is the bottom line. The vet knows he is responsible-I could tell when I told him she had Lymphoma.

My llasa Apso had the 3 way shot 21/2 years ago and about 6 hours later after going to bed I could feel her twitching and her skin hot to touch. I called the vet and he suggested giving her benadyrl. She seemed to come out of it. I am supposed to give her another shot tomorrow and frankly I don't know if the chance of her getting a worse reaction this time is worth it. I might add she has severe skin reactions to many things including staph bacteria.

My 13 pound Snauzer had shots this afternoon and now he has the shakes and he is throwing up. My dog is three years old and only had two vaccinations when he was quite young and my vet recomended another round of shots. My little dog won't stop shaking and he is quite sick. I am monitoring him and I took his temp. And it was 101.5 so its not too high. I am giving him small amounts of water and he can't seem to hold that down. I will take him to the emergency vet if he does not subside soon.

My question to you is that my dogs (breeds black labarodor (2 months old) and Rotweiler (4 months old) had their first vaccination of distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirius, leptospirosis). Since their vaccination they have lost appetite, vomiting and severe dirreahea. Please suggest what can be done.

My Portuguese Water Dog was given full vaccination right before being crated, shipped across country to airport and flown to Hawaii. By the time she arrived, she was listless, would not drink water or eat and within days, she was aggressive to the point that full grown manly men started calling her "devil dog". She also acted like she was ADHD. A few years later a vet "accidentally" gave her a Lepto vaccine w/o my permission (I don't do vaccines any longer) and now I worry we've just made things worse long term. This event was the one that made me learn and research things to do to help with vaccine reactions. Both these two traits (aggerssion/ADHD) have waned a bit with years of feeding raw organic food, doing heavy metal detox, homeopathic vaccine detox (Dr. Gloria Dodd) and more natural approaches. But I fear she will never be "right" and every day I wonder what new thing will pop up in her due to the toxic effects and her sensitive system.

STOP THE MADNESS!!! All I hope is the she hasn't suffered for naught - that her story will continue to encourage other dog owners to re-think all yearly vaccines. Evil madness - and we WiLL be judged on how we protected the innocents.

my 5 year old healthy male dachshund received 3 vaccines on Friday Septmeber 2. He received bordatella, distemper and Lyme disease. A few hours later the area under his chin was swollen and he whimpered to my touch, both on his body and on his mouth. He went back the vet and received 2 shots of Benadryl and a steroid. We still have him on Benadryl orally every 12 hours, but the swollen area under his chin remains.

What should we do next? We are very concerned

I have not owned a dog in over 20 years, so I'm not sure if there's a causal relationship between the corona shot that my pupy received or not, but my gut feeling tells me that there is.

Almost 2 weeks ago, we bought an 8-week-old cream Chow Chow puppy from an inexperienced breeder (she was young and didn't feel the need to give me any instructions or tell me much about the little guy unless I asked).

He seemed pretty docile and lethagic until my husband and I decided to stop and get a sandwich at the local Arby's. As soon as my husband opened the sandwich carton, the puppy went wild! We figured that he was starvng, so we gave him a few small pieces of roast beef. So that we could eat our meal, we put him in a little carrier until we finished eating.

We went to the nearest store we could find and bought a can of dog food to tide him over for our long ride home (almost 2 hours). He went after that food with a vengeance! I believe he ate about 1/3 to 1/2 of the can of food. After he finished, I felt his ribs and he felt very thin to me--his little ribs were very palpable.

That night, his stomach was so tight that I called my vet. He was not able to defecate, although he tried several times. We followed the vet's advice and gave him 1/2 tsp. Of oil to help. The next day his stomach was good, but he had diarrhea.

Monday came and I took him to the vet to get checked. I had no idea that they were going to give him a shot because I told them that he had his shots and his wormer 2 weeks prior. They gave him the 3rd round of shots anyway and I gave him the wormer(liquid) when we got home.

The next day, our puppy (by now we had named him Picachu) was breathing laboriously, was coughing, sneezing, and had a runny nose. My husband read on a vaccine box in the pet store that this is a normal reaction to the vaccine.

However, this bothered me, so I took Picachu back to the vet this past Friday. It was found that there was an increased amount of bacteria in his stomach. So, she put him on antibiotics (one liquid called Albon and another in a pill form) that she said would cover the respiratory end and the stomach.

He seems to be getting better--having normal stools and although the respiratory symptoms are still there, they're not as bad as they were.

I have a toy poodle who weighs 6 lbs. When he got his first rabies 1 year vaccine he only weighed 2 lbs. He had a reaction that involved his skin getting bright red after the shot which travelled down his hind quarters. Then the tips of both his ears became irritated and a week or so later looked like someone had tried to embroider the edges. I had to soak off all the scabs in warm bath water. A month later he lost all the hair in the area of his injection site. I went ahead a year later to give him his 3 year vaccine only this time he was given some medication prior to the injection to help with the inflammation I believe it was benedryl. He had the same reaction as before but it was not as severe as before. My vet and I decided after both reactions that he would no longer receive this vaccine.

My dog also reacted to the Lyme Disease vaccine by having a fever the day after that injection. I no longer give him this vaccine.

He is currently titered in between his vaccines and they are spread out during the year (Bordetallo is given at different times)
