Boston had his second jab this morning. We got home at about 11am, he did a wee outside and since then has laid on the living room rug and hasn't moved a single muscle. He cries whenever I have picked him up (just to check him) and is also looking very glassy eyed. He is also crying out in his sleep every now and then (this just breaks my heart, he sounds in such pain).

I know it obviously a bad reaction to the jab and hopefully it will pass in under 24hrs but it's really distressing to see my little pumpkin so lifeless. :(

It's hard to know whether this is normal, or if it is something worth calling the vet about. Am I being a neurotic first time mum? :(

Did he have his microchip too? Vincent is having his 2nd jabs on Monday and we've been told it's a big needle! Maybe he's feeling a bit upset with what happened?

Vincent was very sleepy for 24 hours after his 1st jabs which the vet said about 1 in every 10 or so pups that have it get sleepy. If in doubt ask the vet!!!!!

So while I am on the phone to the vets, the poor little tacker gets up for the first time in 5 hours, walks over to my rug and pees all over it (typical but I am not cross...at least he is peeing!). The vet wants to just double check him before the weekend, so I am taking him back right now. I am sure he is gonna be fine.

He was microchipped beforehand, but he did have a bad reaction to the needle at the time. He literally leapt into my arms afterwards, crying his little heart out. Poor little thing.

Lozza at least you are relaxed now and not still worrying with those 'what if?' questions. You did absolutely the right thing by checking and your vet obviously thought it was worth seeing him too. All good news ....... now go and enjoy your weekend. :)

Hi Lozza, glad to hear Boston is a little perkier now. Obi was the same after his jabs for a good 24 hours each time. Do you know if he reacted the same with his first jab, could JD advise? Remember the immune system is working hard to counter the jabs and and build immunity and some dogs have a more sensitive immune system than others. I'm sure he will be fine by tomorrow but if in any doubt don't be afraid to ask your vet.

It's very interesting for us on this forum as we too have learned stuff that we haven't experienced ourselves....like reation to vaccinations, i can honestly say that we have never had a dog that has reacted badly to any vaccination. Maybe they are more susceptible once they leave here and are under more stress, especially with Nobivac being given at 10 weeks rather than The Eurican we normally use which is given at 12 weeks. Even though they don't probably show it the stress of going to a new home must take it's toll. J xx

Delta reacted bady to her jab too. but was told to give the back of her neck a rum as sometimes the vacc gets traped between the skin so you need to give it a little rub to deprerse it. she was fine by the night. but during the day very quivery. i remember popping a blanket over her.
Inca then came over and lay down ontop of her for a couple of seconds, it was amazing it was the first time she had shown any interest in her, not sure if it was like a cuddle or trying to warm her up or just her way of checking on her.


glad he is ok
