A little worried about Evye

She has a vet appointment tomorrow for her last vaccination so will talk about this with the vet, but for the past 5 days, her activity has really declined. She went from 100% psycho-active pup to more subdued. She still has plenty of vim and vinegar but nothing in comparison. I just had her out in the back yard running and she was panting a lot afterwards. No vomiting, no diarrhea, not a great appetite except for treats. Is this a normal transition from a baby pup to a 4-month-old pup or should I be concerned? Seems like she is never tired and now seems to tire more easily. Her appetite has never been great, off and on but its been way off lately.

Vaccines should only be given to healthy dogs. If you think she is not doing well, hold off and reschedule the vaccine. Never vaccinate a dog that does not seem to be doing well.

Thank you Kimberly, as usual, for your wonderful advice to us newby's.

I spoke with my vet tonight and he said we will do a good exam on her before doing her vaccinations tomorrow. He reassured me what I am describing sounds pretty typical for puppy behavior. She is definitely psycho-puppy tonight !!!!

I'm glad she is full of energy tonight. That sounds better.

I just re-read your initial post where you said this is for her last vaccine. Is this her final DHPP? Make sure your vet doesn't give her the Rabies at the same time. Rabies should be given separate from any other vaccines. If you want any backup on that information, you can go to www.itsfortheanimals.com and look up Jean Dodds, DVM's vaccine protocols. She is a long-time veterinarian and scientist and is the head of the Rabies Challenge Fund.

I am petried of rabies vaccinations. If it wasn't required by law, I would love to forgo it. My Himalayan had an allergic reaction to it one year out of the blue. Had received it every 3 years for years. One vaccination, after returning back home, I noticed a bright red nose, bright red around her ears, scatching something terrible. Back to the vet for epinephrine and Benadryl. All was okay but she never had another one !!!

We have every bad dog disease known in our neighborhood~~rabies, bordatella, etc. So I just grit my teeth and give these innoculations to my poor puppies and hope for the best. So far, no problems, luckily.



HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~

The ONLY reason I get mine the rabies is because if they ever, heaven forbid, bit someone they could actually be euthanised. (sp) At least that's what I heard and it scared me. What if they just accidently nipped a small child and their parents were jerks. You know what I mean?

That's true, Carole. One bite and your dog can be taken from you and have their head removed if you cannot provide proof of Rabies vaccination.

If your dog (or cat) ever has a reaction to the Rabies vaccine, you can get your vet to document it and get an exemption from any further Rabies vaccinations. You MUST have it in writing from a veterinarian though. Your word is not going to be accepted, so be sure to have your veterinarian document it and write an exemption for you.
