My little 3 lb chihuahua did the same thing. He now has a reverse sneeze that freeks most people out that he does daily. He had another reaction last week to his 3 year rabies shot which is the only one he still gets. His face was huge and he had hives and his fur was sticking out. Childrens benedryl and emergency vet were fabulous. No more shots for our dog... he'll get titers.

I have a 4 yr old pug and she had never had gotten any type of vaccines. I found her under a tree in a river dying of parvo, wrapped in a blanquet. I knew it was Parvo because my previous chihuahua had died of parvo and she had the same symptoms. I took her to get her first parvo and rabies shot in April 2011 and a little over a month later she started vomiting after she ate. She vomits foam with the food. I've switched foods like crazy for her because she is extremely allergic to corn oil. And also super delicate to what she eats. So I never took her back to get the 2nd shots of vaccines right after the first one's. It's been almost 3 months she vomits after she eats and is super skinny. But is always hungry, drinks alot of water is super energetic when I take her to the park. I seriously don't know what to do or think. I don't trust the vaccines and I know if I take her to a Vet the first thing is to give her the next 2 vaccines. Please help me!

I have 12 cats and have fostered cats for many years. I have experienced vac reactions in 1st vac kitten vaccinations. One litter I had 2 out of the 3 had a reaction. One with limping syndrome, 2 days post vac, and the other lethargic and sickly for a few days. Both ok for 2nd vac. An elderly cat I have, stray so age unknown but into his teens, had regular yearly vacs with me for up to 2 years ago. He experienced lethargy for 3 days. Had to have sub cut fluids on day 2. Behaved like he had reumatic pain, couldn't have nsaid as renal insufficiency. I have known people who have commented that after vacs their pets seem to have delayed reactions. Some have told me about incidents of being involved in rta within days of vaccinations. I have never read any literature about this before.

My almost 9 week old American Bulldog developed small pimple like yellow dots close to his penis after his first set of shots and worming. Also some loose stool. I will keep an eye on this to make sure it dosent get any worse.

Cody is a pure bread long haired mini daschund he received a distemper shot and a rabies shot and ended up sick like he had the flu. Mucus coming from his eyes and major vomiting! Most recently he has lost his will to eat. I don't know what to do to get him to eat on his own, are there any suggestions on what to do?

My 5 month old chihuahua/poodle mix puppy just received his last round of puppy boosters. The breeder gave him the first round, the Humane Society the second round, and the vet just gave him the last round yesterday. She asked if he had any reactions to previous vaccines and I stated no, he did not. The last time I took him for his shots he was completely fine that evening and the following days, playing and everything.

Last night my dog couldn't sleep at all because he was continuously yelping. Anyway he tried to lay, it hurt him. This morning was no better. I called the vet and they had me bring him in to give him another shot called Metacam that is supposed to relieve the pain. I couldn't even get the harness on him because it went over his shoulder and that's where he received the first shot.

After the Metacam, he is still very lethargic and yelping but not as much. I hope by tomorrow he returns to himself. The vet assistant actually said that in the future, we may have to refrain from vaccinating him because of his extreme sensitivity to vaccines. We plan on keeping him in the house after puppy classes anyway and I don't want to see him go through this again.

The beginning of 2011, my two year old Shichon received the three year parvo/distempter booster. By morning, she could not walk. When she attempted to walk she could not walk in a straight line. She would not eat, drink or play and later in the day developed a limp. I called the vet and immediately took her into the office. I was told to watch for vomiting. Vomiting never occurred but she was not back to her regular self for three entire days! I was told by the vet complaining to the manufacturer would be a waste of time so I felt very helpless. I will NEVER have my dogs vaccinated again! TOO RISKY!

From my research, most dogs do not need the booster shots. A titer blood test can determine this. What a shock that the manufacturers finally are claiming the same "yearly" boosters are now good for three years instead of one year. Non-traditional vets have been saying for years that yearly boosters are not necessary and are very harmful.

I am even more worried now after reading post on this site. I took my 6 year old Daschund to the vet (Banfield) today for shots. He received Rabies Vaccine, Distemper Parvo Dapp, Canine Bordetella. I noticed his right eye was a little red-nothing to worry about. Once we were home my daughter noticed the eye was bloodshot (thick, red). My daughter thought the eye was bleeding. I immediately took him back. After looking him over I was told he's okay, it's an allergic reaction and to give him Benydryl. I hope nothing additional goes wrong. He is still very playful. I will give it 2 days-if his eye remains this way I will take him back. Sorry to hear of any loss to others who posted. I am another who really does not trust or believe in the vaccine purpose. They have caused alot of health problems for humans and pets. Look how many children are ADHD and ADD.

In December of 2010 I had a beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier shipped to me from England. I have been involved in this breed for 20 years and have been looking for a nice red and white for about 4 years. I paid a very large amount of money for this boy. I finally found the perfect dog and had done all the due diligence of studing his line. He arrived healthy and absolutly everything that I had expected. With many of my dogs being in the top 10 in the country my expectations were that this boy could be number one. As he grew I was very pleased and never thought any less of him.

In February I took him in to the vet and had his vacinations and Rabies. Within a week I was noticeing him rubbing his eyes and face on the carpet and a large area on his back losing hair. I took him in to the vet and found that the area where his hair was falling out was right where he had recieved his rabie vac. We decussed options on how to help him through this and then I took him home to decide. The skin was becoming very thich where the shot had been administered and the thought was that the only way to stop the issue was to surgically remove that area of skin. As the days passed I saw that the area was getting larger and knew that we would have to act on it.

Then one Monday morning I woke up with him having cherry eye. I took him in right away and it was confirmed. We decided we could no longer wait and had surgery on the eye as well as the large area on his back (about the size of golf ball ) removed. The cherry eye was caused from the allergies and his rubbing his eye on the carpet, his background has no issues with allergies or any other health problems. So now I have a young dog that I had planned to have in the ring to win against all others who has an eye issue and a large scare across his back. I worked as a vet tech many years ago and do not ever recall seeing these issues from these shot, but then we used modified live vacines back then not the killed.

I love this little guy with all my heart, and still do even though he is not able to do what my original plans were. But I still have to keep him from reacting from the allergies. He still wants to dig at his eyes, rub his face in the carpet and dig at himself. He is uncomfortable becouse I did what the law says is the right thing and had him vacinated. He lives in the house and is never allowed to run free, so what is the chances of him ever coming in contact with rabies. This has changed my thoughts on Rabies vacines and I honestly do not know that I will ever be able to bring myself to give another one again!

My 3 year old chihuahua mix got his Lyme disease shot today. He usually is all happy and entergetic but now he is just laying down or sleeping and only gets up a little bit and walks slow and stiff. He doesn't really move his neck either. Also I tried to pick him up and he squealed. I was wondering if it's side affects from the shot, or maybe side affects of the actual disease? Can getting the Lyme disease vaccine put an animal at risk to actually get it? Thanks. I just hope he doesn't have Lyme disease. It's sad to see him like this..

I took my 3 lb 16 week old Maltese to get her last parvo shot. They gave her it and the rabies shot. She was fine until about and hour afterward. She yelped when I tried to hold her. I thought she was sore. Later she kind of drug her hind end and could not stand for me to touch her from the shoulders back. She would turn around trying to get to her tail. I now read she should not have got multiple vaccines, and that Maltese AND small breeds are most likely for reactions. UGH!

Our 5 1/2 year old cocker spaniel went into anaphylactic shock after receiving her annual rabies and distemper vaccines. She has had these vaccines without incident since birth. The vet is not sure which vaccine she reacted to d/t both being administered at the same time. Luckily, the vet responded immediately with proper treatment and although our dog also suffered delayed reactions, we were able to bring her home 8 hours later. She does not seem to have suffered any consequences as a result of the near death incident. The vet said she should not receive the distemper vaccine again, just the titre. She is "not sure" what we should do about the rabies vaccine.
