I'm sorry to hear of this with Beau. He appears to be experiencing a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to his vaccines. Most dogs will normalize within 36 hours unaided. Dosing with both an over the counter antihistamine such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) dosed at 1-2 mg per pound of body weight at 12 hour intervals and aspirin dosed at 10 mg per pound of body weight with food at 12 hour intervals should hasten resolution of Beau's reaction. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Should I give him something for pain?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry didn't see you suggested aspirin.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

No worries. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

the shaking is a normal reaction to his shots? I'm such a worry wort lol he has had a hard life already he had cociddia when we got him.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Yes, shaking indicates both discomfort and fever. This, like his coccidia, shall pass!
