We think our dog is having a reaction to the lyme

We think our dog is having a reaction to the lyme vaccination. He is lethargic; his breathing is more labored. At one point he was staring and not moving-that was the first evening of the vaccine. He has not been that way since. We are planning on taking him to the vet in the morning. Is this something he will recover from?

I have a question about puppy shots. I recently got a puppy

I have a question about puppy shots. I recently got a puppy from a reputable breeder but in all the excitement when I picked him up, I forgot to get the shot record. When I took him to the Vet today, we decided to go ahead & do a round of shots. When I returned home, the breeder had mailed the shot record & he had just had a round of shots 1 week ago. What should I do? I am so worried.

I have a 4 month old German Shepherd puppy. Since last

Hi. I have a 4 month old German Shepherd puppy. Since last Thursday he has been acting a little more tired than usual and hasn't been eating as much as he usually does. Just this evening, I noticed a greenish colored discharge from one of his eyes and clear from the other. His nose is a little runny. He has had mildly bloodshot eyes on and off for a couple of weeks and when I asked the vet about it last week, she told me it was most likely allergies and to not worry. He goes to puppy daycare 3 times a week and when I picked him up this afternoon, the director told me that he had diarrhea this morning. His only bowel movement since then was soft, but not runny.Some other important things to note:1. He is teething right now - very aggressively.2. Last Thursday, he received his booster for distemper. It was that evening that I noticed he started acting puny. But not consistently puny - he has been up and down since then - sometimes very sleepy and inactive while at other times, normal energy levels.I plan to call our vet first thing in the morning and try to get an appointment, but they are closed tonight and I'm just feeling uneasy about his symptoms. Any suggestions or thoughts?Thank you!
