My dog received some shots yesterday and he was fine. But this morning he was limping a little and looks like he was sore. He did eat his food but only walked enough to pee and then wanted to go back home. after the little walk he seemed not to be limping but really didn't want to walk. Is this normal?

Vaccinations? My dogs are ages 8 and 4 and i have always
Vaccinations? My dogs are ages 8 and 4 and i have always taken them to the vet for their annual boosters. I have come to the realization that I don't want to over vaccinate them. They are due for DHPP, lyme, lepto, and bordatella. I live in north Texas and would like to know if the DHPP is really necessary to revaccinate every year? I decided not to give them bordatella since I don't take them to dog parks or other social events with unknown dogs. I don't understand why Rabies vaccine is given at intervals of 3 yrs and DHPP is every year? Also based on my location would it be advisable to vaccinate on lyme and lepto? I mean we sometimes get opossums and rabbits scowering my neighborhood.

Quick background, Meadow is an eleven year old bedlington
quick background, Meadow is an eleven year old bedlington that came olive with me a year ago when her owner died. Meadow lived in New York I live in Fl. When she got here she started with allergies, scratching so much she caused hot spots. We tried dexamethasone, very low dose as Meadow responds well to low doses. we did blood tests for allergies and changed her diet.Then Apoquel came along and completely made her a new dog. she was on 2.7 mg daily and then I took her down to 1.8 daily and she is doing fine. thinking of taking her off to see how she does. she weighs 15 its and has been on the drug for a year. Now my problem: Meadow has developed seizures for lack of a better name. she will wake up and be very wobbly and have nystagmus. these episodes usually last around two hours. she will eat a little this way but will not not her head down. Once it is over she is fine. Yesterday she had another one but this time she acted very scared and started shaking and panting. called the vet and we gave her .125 of sex. after 2 hours she was fine. This all started 2 weeks after her rabies vaccination. My vet put her on Cepha after the second episode and she didn't ave another attack until last night. That was after 2 weeks. I had mentioned to my vet that she had eaten cat feces from a neighbors cat prior to the seizures and i had my lawn treated. she felt the likelihood of something from the cat feces was not probable since she had no other symptoms, and i had kept her off the lawn for 24 hours after the treatment so we ruled that out. She had blood work done prior to the rabies vaccine because of the Apoquel and just checking. Blood work was fine. I asked my vet last night about trying Lyssin but she said that was out of her league. What do you think, any other ideas?

Dog is not active and is very wobbly. Should I be worried?
My usually overactive Aussie/collie mix is not active and is very wobbly. He had watery buggery eyes this morning (we have a kitten that was just given eye drops for an eye infection yesterday). I would write it off as pink eye also but the fact that he's wobbly and won't eat has me really worried. It's up to date on all its shots and my dog just got his updated rabies vaccine yesterday
