Default Puppy whimpering after first injection

Hi, just had my 8 week old lhasa apso to the vets tonight for his first injection and examination, he has been fine all night , eating and drinking and playing as usual however about an hour ago he has started whimpering all the time and dosent seem himself at all .He will still drink and has eaten but just dosent seem very well.
Im asking this as my last dog was very ill after his injections and had to be put on a drip for 2 days but he made a full recovery and i wouldnt like to have to go through anything like that again

thanks for any advice in advance

Question Bad Reactions to Meds

Usually the Vet is supose to tell u up front how often dogs have weird reactions to injections. Some even pass out! Make sure to test your dog for weird allergic reactions to certain medications.

The vet is supposed to tell you about reactions...the good ones do anyways. But (at least where I am), there really isn't a simple test that will tell you what medications your dog will react to. It's more of a trial and error kind of thing. Most dogs I've seen react to the rabies, and it's usually the smaller ones. Usually the whimpering is from the soreness at the injection site, and the "doesn't feel well" is mostly the vaccine making them tired.

Main thing to do at this point is keep an eye on him. If it lasts more than a day or so, a trip back is in order. A call now wouldn't hurt as well, just to give them a heads up.

A phone call to your vet would be advisable and should relieve your worries considerably! He'll tell you exactly what signs to look for and possibly recommend something OTC to make him more comfortable.

There is NOT a vet here nor a vet tech to advise so give the vet a call, he should have on call somebody to assist in questions. Often vets do not get on the phone nor should they, this is why they make appointments for us. There are many reactions for pups from vacs, I get mine done at six weeks, but only things I have dealth with is runny stools a day or so and tad bit of soreness. Some shots later in life give severe reactions and are often worse than what they are preventing, is exactly why mine get a booster 2 or 3 times a year. Puppies should get a series of the first year of life however. BEing a small breed they are more subject it seems to reactions, or may of been a live virus type rather than killed virus type of shot. Depends on vet. Do get hold of one, if it was given in the neck back of area, and is sore to touch u can apply little bit of ice to help relieve it. I think that is most likely the sourse is soreness. Hope nothing else and wish you the best. Keep us posted on your puppy.
