    Re: Vaccintation Shots

    I actually bought dog benedryl and my vet laughed at me because it is the exact same thing as people benedryl but I probably paid $5 more because the bottle said it was for dogs.  Let me tell you, being a first time puppy mommy is much harder than I expected, but I love her so much!  I am such a worry wart/hypocondriac when it comes to her.  She sneezes and I want to call the vet.  They probably think I am a freak!!!

    No freakier than they think I am, lol.  For how accident prone Gracie is I wonder what ELSE they might think of me and DH!  Love the doggie benedryl story. :)

    Re: Vaccintation Shots

    I didn't even think about just showing up.  I should have!  I will remember that for next time.  Yes Kar, it sounds like I have very expensive benedryl in my cabinet, next to the baby aspirin (I have no kids, just my puppy) and I am afraid to use it!

    Ruth, I have to tell you that your dog (sorry forgot his name) has such a sad face and soulful eyes that I would have to give him everything he wanted!  Just the cutest face ever.

    His name's Apollo (and I usually just refer to him as "my pup" so thats ok) and yes he does an incredible "puppy dog" eyes doesn't he?  We decided that if he was going to beg for food the least we could do was teach him to beg while "down" so that he didn't overwhelm our nephew (who's 3), except he's so big (at all of 9 months!) he can be in proper down position and still prop his head on my leg and give me those pitifull eyes.....

    Bethany, if I hadn't been specifically told by my vet that the human tablets were ok (his dose size was exactly one tablet which made it easy) I'd have probly done the same thing so don't feel bad.  The folks at my vets office laugh at me too, but then by that time I'm usually laughing at myself so its ok.

    Personally I'm not convinced its a reaction to her shots, though it certinally could be.  Its definetly worth having checked though, I tend to function on the theory that I'd rather have my vet tell me its nothing rather than not go and have it turn out to be something.  Please let us know what your vet says!

    Re: Vaccintation Shots

    Hello all, Thanks to all for the wonderful advise.  I did take my baby to the vet this past Saturday, and $90 later after they took some of the fluid out and tested it.  The vet told me that everything was fine.  Nothing cancerous and that he has seen dogs have reactions to shot (especially the rabies) for as long as  amonth after the shot.  This was the hip that she had the rabies shot in, so I feel MUCH better!  we have been keeping an eye on it and it seems to be a little smaller, but that could be my imagination due to relief.  But regardless, my baby is good!

    You are correct Robin.  Amber has always gotten them.  She also has a bleeding wart and that too is common in Shih Tzu's.

    Re: Vaccintation Shots

    yay!! 

    I didn't realize that a dog could have that sort of reaction to the shot that far removed from having it given.  I knew about all sorts of other delayed issues, but not like that.  The things you learn!

    Yes ... there is a type of fast growing tumor that can develop at the injection site.  I didn't want to mention it before,  out of fear the information would cause unnecessary alarm.

    I am so glad that you didn't, I was feeling positively ill by the time I walked in there.  I had all these images of tumors and really bad stuff!  Glad to know I was over reacting

    Just wanted to make a correction regarding Benadryl; saw the specialist today and he told me to use the regular tablets not the childrens liquid etoh free.
    There is an ingredient Xylitol in it that is not good for dogs.

    Of course, always consult with your vet first before giving.

    PS: The regular vet had told me something different Foot in Mouth
