Vaccine Soreness

Olly just got her 3rd round of vaccines today. Now she yelps whenever I pick her up! I think she must be sore from the injections... Seems logical to me but has anyone else had this happen?

My pup never seems sore but the vet told us that they sometimes can be for a day or two.

Yes Oscar was very sore after one vaccine. He squeeled when I tried to pick him up and it scared me! We only do one at a time so we can see how he tolerates each one. Tomorrow will be the last one and I'll be happy to stop going to the vet for a while!
It was the lepto vaccine that bothered him and I have heard of other little dogs being bothered by it.

I know its disturbing when they yelp after a vaccination. So far the only shot that Jack had difficulty with was the one for Lyme disease. It bothered him the evening of the shot but not the next morning. Since your in upstate NY like us I suspect that one will be coming up.

Well, whenever I have had vaccinations I have a VERY sore arm for a day or two afterwards, can't sleep on that side, and would definitely yelp if someone tried to pick me up and squashed the sore bit!!
