A 6lb Chihuahua, she...

A 6lb Chihuahua, she had Rabies, DHPP and Lyme Disease shots 2 days ago and now has developed swelling in the neck, area just above the injection site. Should I be concerned?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Chihuahua?

She's perfectly healthy in all areas, just got a clean bill of health from her Dr. I would call him but he's not available until Monday.

HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you...

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Is your dog eating, drinking ,urinating and defecating normally?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

If your dog is normal in every other way except for the swelling and the swelling is not causing any breathing problems of any type then you should be bale to wait until Monday to contact your vet...we don't give vaccines in the neck area just so we know what vaccine is given where....some vaccines will cause swelling like this that is simply an immune response to the vaccine...but this needs to be monitored carefully...please let me know if you have additional questions......Sincerely,DRB
