I have a 7 year old boxer and a 1 year old boxer. Best of friends up until a month ago. Both had their annual shots on a Friday, and both had surgery on the Wednesday following (the youngest was spayed, and the oldest had dental surgery). Since then, the youngest has started being very aggressive... She began right after the surgery visously attacking the older boxer, then turned into more dominance fighting (that has now turned agressive, because she realized if she grabbed the older dogs ear, she could not be pinned). I had heard that the change in behaviour could have been caused by receiving her rabies injection a few days before surgery and her low immune system could not deal with the injection, causing her to be abnormally agressive. My questions are "have you heard of this before? and will it wear off?
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)
Brought my 2 cats to Petco for their vaccinations. The next day Tiger who is normally very happy go lucky was limping and crying and him sore when we touched him. After rushing him to the er, xrays and blood work they thought he may have been hit by a car. The next day he was perfectly fine. One week after the shot we found him listless and seemingly paralyzed on one side. Again we rushed him to the vet. We told he had recently had vaccinations but they kept insisting it was not the cause of his problems. They said he had neurological damage. At the vet he seized, his hind legs went straight out and he was unable to control them. The vet gave him no hope so we put him down. How does a healthy 2 1/2 year cat go from perfectly healthy to dead in a week if it weren't from the shot?
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.
Three years ago, I took my 3-yr-old dachshund in for his vaccinations and grooming. He was actually going to be part of a TV commercial the next day. When I picked him up his eyes were watering and his face was swollen. They told me he had a reaction to his vaccines and they give him benadryl and a steroid shot. He was a little better by morning. The sad thing is after his vaccines he started to have monthly seisures! He had never had one before. And the look in his eyes changed.
Fast forward a few more years, when "Skipper" was six and he needed surgery to clean out his stomach after gettign into the trash and digesting too much junk. The vet said it was "not-uncommon" surgery and I would be find to take him home in the evening. He went on to say most dogs are back up walking around later that night. Well, that's not the case with "Skipper" - unfortunately, he had could barely move or keep his eyes opened. I let him rest and just stayed up with him. But by mid morning, he was gone. It was awful! I have had to say goodbye to pets before from old age and stayed with them when they were put to sleep, but I've not had to go through this. And I blame it all on the vaccines triggering the reaction, the seizures and thus, not having the strength he should have to go through a "routine" surgery!
I've since found out doxies are one of the breeds that has reactions to the vacccines. It's crazy we are insisting dogs get so many shots yearly - just to keep veterarians in business!
How long after your vaccinations did your dog get sick? Was it a few days?
My Pekingnese died in four days from a distemper vaccination. He was in otherwise perfect health. The vet who had administered the shot admitted that it sometimes happens. I had never heard of a deadly reaction to a shot that we are told all dogs must have. Her sanguine advice was, if I get another dog, to "get the dog's titres checked" before getting the dog vaccinated for distemper.
Thanks for your kind reply , ya lets all make sure next time, dog is not exposed to deadly vaccins, I really don wan vets to break my soul once again... Lets all pray for the sleeping soul to ever rest in peace and be a guardian angel, :(... Miss my RUByyyyyyyyy
I got my 5 month old labrador shot with coronovirus vaccine. After 3 days the puppy got sick and developed the symptoms of coronovirus. It started vomitting and lost its appetite. What could be the reason for this and what are is the treatment to be given ???
I RECENTLY WENT THROUGH THE SAME THING SAME AS TWO OF MY SISTERS DID. VETS. ARE EUTHANIZING OUR PETS BY THE MILLIONS; NATION WIDE, AND THEY HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO DO SO. IF YOU HAVE ANY FRIENDS WITH PETS ASK THEM NOT TO GO TO THE VETS. LET NATURE TAKE CARE OF ITSELF; IF ALL ELSE FAILS WE CAN TRY TO HELP SAVE OUR OWN ANIMALS. , WITH NATURAL CURES. MY VET GAVE MY SWEET ZOEY AN ANTIHISTAMINE WHICH MADE HER HEART BEAT WAY TOO FAST AS SHE WAS ALREADY BREATHING HEAVILY FROM BEING SICK, I TOOK HER HOME AN SHE DIED IN MY ARMS I WAS DEVASTATED AND HEART BROKEN. THEY CAN'T HAVE OUR SOULS SO THEY TRY TO BREAK OUR SPIRITS. BE SURE TO SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT YOUR VET. I'M SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. GOD BLESS

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.
Yes, I Have had a GR puppy that had frequent and excessive urination right after I vaccinated him with distemper shots. Never again. It took a long time for the issue to correct itself. A good Holistic Vet can give your dog homeopathic treatments that has no side effects and may help your pup get back to normal.
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?
Mike, I'm so sorry for your loss and have a similar story. They gave my 15 year old female cat a distemper shot and within 1 week, she became totally lethargic, wasn't eating or drinking and at the end of the week could not walk. They put her on steroids and I have to say they did help her but I don't want her to have to be on steroids the rest of her life. I found a holistic vet and she is doing accupucture and chirocpractic treatments on her. She was doing better for a while but mentally, she's just not the same and I'm afraid she never will be. She was 15 and extremely healthy. She was still a bit playful, had bright, shining eyes, ran, jumped, and played hide-and-seek with me. Now she lays around all day and night and basically only gets up to eat and barely eats at that. I miss her so much and could just cry every time I see her. I feel like I poisoned her and it's taking its toll on me.
I've since found out that the vaccines they are giving our pets (and children) have mercury in them -- the worst toxin on our planet and they are shooting it right into their bloodstream -- and telling us they need it. And why do they use mercury in our vaccines -- because it increases the shelf life.
They over vaccinate under the guise that it's necessary and I've since found out it's not. After a certain age, they just don't need it anymore and in fact, it builds up in their system and actually can hurt them.
Veronica from SC; You have done some great research. But I hope you are not planning on steroids for any animals? they are not even good for humans, most every man made med. Can not be processed by our bodies, if any thing it breaks down our immune system, animals immunity is even lower than humans. good luck.
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..
