Took Mayzie today for her last ear check-up and the booster shot they had put off in the past. She is 16 weeks old and weighs 7 pounds. She has only gained 1 pound in the past 4 weeks...is that enough? It doesn't seem like very much for a puppy.
And isn't this supposed to indicate she'll be 14 pounds as an adult?
Then they gave her the booster shot. She didn't cry or anything, and when I got her home she played with the other dogs before I decided to take a nap. I crated her, slept for an hour, and opened the crate. She came out of it really slowly, so I picked her up and she yelped like she was in agony. I put her down on my bed right away, and she wouldn't walk at all!
I called the vet and he said not to worry unless it lasts a full day. I was able to carry her outside, and she did both of her businesses and walked a few steps, but no way was she walking all the way back into the house. I carried her in and put her in her ex-pen where she's just laying in her soft bed. So sad!
I have never had a dog act like that after a shot, and I feel so sorry for her! She still won't eat, either.
The vet said to return in 3 weeks for her rabies shot (she'll be 19 weeks). I will probably wait an extra week...20 weeks is what's recommended, right?
