8 year old, 10lb...

8 year old, 10lb Yorkie just got his vaccinations yesterday and is extremely lethargic and unwilling to move. I am concerned he is in a great deal of pain. What can I do to help ease it for the next day or 2?

Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Yorkie.

Can you take his temperature? Normal rectal temp is 101.5 If this is a vaccination reaction, he may have a fever.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

You could try 1/2 of a baby or low dose aspirin, with food. Is he eating?

If you lift his lip to check his gums, are they pink or pale?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Do not give Advil or Aleve, just baby aspirin; 1/2 with food once to twice daily.

His gums are pink, our heat gun isn’t registering his temp correctly though and I’m not sure what else to try.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Okay, baby asprin. Got it. Thanks

The only accurate way to check his temp would be a rectal thermometer.

Good his gums are pink. Is he eating?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

You are welcome; please let me know how he is doing.

he is eating. Other than stiffness and a very slow gate he seems normal.
