Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there, I'd like to help you with Kylie, but am unable to call at this time. My cell phone service is very poor where I am. I hope that my typed response will be acceptable and helpful for you.
Lethargy for 24-48 hours is a normal possible side effect from vaccines. There is always the chance for a vaccine reaction, even if they have been tolerated previously with no issues. Pain can also be a side effect from the vaccines. A mild limp could potentially be associated with tissue soreness following a vaccination.
However; Kylie had a limp last week and was improving. Now she is limping after a play date. If her previous injury was soft tissue in origin, this makes sense as she may have re-injured herself by playing too hard. I always recommend strict rest for 2 weeks following a soft tissue injury. Let me know if you have any other questions! - Dr. C
