Recent Vaccine Reaction questions

I recently moved across the country to Portland Oregon with

I recently moved across the country to Portland Oregon with my 95 pound coonhound/malamute, Parker. Parker has been sluggish and depressed the past 3 weeks since we arrived in Portland, but every once in a while over the past week or so, she's her old self....getting into everything and super playful. Not once in past 4 weeks has she turned down a walk. She loves her way! On Friday...2 days ago...I took her to meet potentialnew vet and to gethe laptop vaccinat6,as she was due. Vet noted good health at checkup and administered vaccine. Parker was fine (tired) that evening and all day yesterday into this morning. This afternoon she's gotten very weak, does not want to walk, had to be encouraged to come to eat dinner (she ate all, but normally she's so excited about dinner time that she runs in circles a whimpers while I get it), and seems to only feel comfortable walking 30-40 feet and then lays down.I can tell she doesn't feel well at all. No vomiting, no diarrhea. Not panting and heartbeat feels normal. I don't have a thermometer, so I can't take temperature.I'm concernedit may be reaction to lepto vaccine. She's never had problem before, but new vet in new region....could vaccine be different? I don'twant to rush off to emergency clinic if I'm overreacting

My 15 year old Lhasa died after going about 11 days without

My 15 year old Lhasa died after going about 11 days without eating. He was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease a few months ago and I'm pretty sure he had doggie dementia. I took him to Vet when he didn't eat anything all day.this was not all that unusual cause sometimes he would skip a day or two. But he seemed to have trouble popping. He would walk a few steps, squat but nothing would happen. He kept repeating this and never pooped. This is why I took him to Vet. Also his annual shots were due. Well after his shots he never wanted to eat again. They tried different foods and he had fluids intravenously. Vet said he was too nauseated to eat. They sorta blame the kidney disease. I feel like those shots were the reason he got sick and he was too old for shots. If only I had not allowed them to give him the shots,he would be with me today. I miss him so very much. What do you think happened?

I have a 10 year old male Coton. He has had a couple

Hi, I have a 10 year old male Coton. He has had a couple cauliflower pink warts, 1 on his back and one on the tail for about a year or two. He had his yearly vaccination about 6-7 weeks ago and new one are appearing like crazy, 6 to February exact, all on his back, shoulder and thighs. They are very itchy and my vet only wants to give him a steroid or apoquel which I refuse to do. Is thuja effective and how much would I give orally? Could I also use it topically? Should I ask him to crush a few and give him azithromycin?

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again

I have a 7 year old standard poodle with on and off again bloody diarrhea - responsive to flagyl tho. We have had ultrasounds, X-rays, blood work and fecal exam - all normal. The vet is suggesting a colonoscopy. She had a horrid reaction to vaccine for leptosirios when she was a pup - with resulting liver issues. We do not give her vaccines on the specialists advice. Colonoscopy or not? Could anesthetic cause problems? Have to drive 3 hours to vet for scope. Thanks so much.

My puppy Kira got a vaccine today and orally took Trifexis

Hi Pearl, my puppy Kira got a vaccine today and orally took Trifexis about an hour later with food. Since then, she has been fine. But about 9 hours from her vaccine she threw up. I took her outside to use the restroom and she has diarrhea (not watery, mushy). Now, (about 40 minutes later) she threw up a small amount again. She sheens normal. Very tired but it is 2am so that's normal for her. Should I be more concerned?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Kira?Customer: She's 5months old and a Husky puppy. No reaction like this beforeJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

My pug is a year old and she got her rabies vaccine on

Hi. My pug is a year old and she got her rabies vaccine on thursday morning. At midnight she threw up. The next day she ate and everything, then in the middle of the day she threw it all up. Since then she has times where she can drink water and shes fine, other times it just comes right back up. She won't go near her food. I tried 1/2 a pepcid, but she hates pills and I don't think she even swallowed it. My vet is closed right now, I tried to go earlier but he wasn't there, he was out at an emergency. He called me and said since it was not instant it was not the vaccine. But she never gets into anything, she's always right next to me. Please help
