• i took my baby in to a new vet today to get a lymes booster and a dhhp (i think) and he put the shots in both side of her hips (like a little fatty part of her upper back? usually they vet puts a shot in the top of her neck….😕

    its gotten swollen and she YELPS and cries if i try to pick her up.... the vet said wait until tomorrow and she if shes still crying....

    has anyone had this before? is this normal? should i give her Tylenol or something?


  • This is not normal and if your vet won't see her then call another vet. It sounds like she is having a reaction to one of the vaccines.

    Do NOT give Tylenol, it is not safe for pets.


  • I guess, I should have said, some tenderness and swelling is normal but she shouldn't be crying in pain and if the swelling is really noticeable that is not normal either.


  • ill call them


  • And also, that is a large amount of shots at one time?…. always better to have them spaced out instead of giving them all at one time.... (regardless what your Vet might tell you)

    Like 2 weeks, correct?


  • i dont know why i ever trust those vets…. its so hard to find a good one!

    That is at least what I would do


  • I'm always suspicious about strange reactions to vaccines. As Ivoss says swelling etc could be just normal but pain is not. I hope that she is back to normal by now. I not and your vet is not cooperative - get another professional opinion.

    Yup. Never hurts to get a 2nd opinion.
