I would not be at all concerned about this if this were to occur with one of my patients or one of my own personal dogs. I would not suggest any intervention of any sort. Monitoring is appropriate as typical after a vaccination. Monitor for swelling at the injection site (assuming this second vaccine was also an injection and not an intra-nasal vaccine, another form the vaccine comes in), vomiting, diarrhea, facial swelling, and lethargy. A little tiredness for a day or so is normal. Minor discomfort at the injection site is also common. Beyond that, contact the clinic that gave the vaccination if any concerns arise. Vaccine reactions typically occur quickly (usually they return to the clinic the same day they were given, within hours, if they occur).
