Shot Reaction?

I took Abby in for her third puppy shot Friday. Right away she went from peeing every couple of hours, & no accidents, to peeing every 20 min. when she’s active. Now when we go outside she will pee 2 or 3 times all day today (Sat). Anyone have this reaction to a puppy shot? It was the DHPPC 3 booster. I asked the assistant if they back off on dosages at such a small weight, & she said without the Lepto they don’t have a problem. Could she have picked up a UTI that quick? So frustrating & worrisome when things were going so well. Thanks for any suggestions.

I would bet on a UTI more than a vaccine reaction in this case. They are not uncommon in female puppies. Both of my girls had them as puppies. I’d get her back to the vet ASAP, because the sooner she gets on ABX, if it’s a UTI, the faster she’ll feel better and the less it will interfere with potty training.

One of my girls actually had two when she was young, and when she had the second one, the vet noticed that she was more than typically hairy around her “lady parts”. She suggested keeping the hair in this area short because it can collct bacteria. As soon as we started keeping that area clipped short, no more UTI’s! OTOH, our other girl is practically naked down there, and she had one UTI as a puppy too.

Thanks much, I’ll give her a warm bath, trim her a bit, & get her back to the vet Monday. As far as catching any pee......sounds nearly impossible when they’re so low to the ground to start with. The grass is higher than her, ha!
