Customer Question

I just bought an 8-n-1 shot for my poodle puppy, who is about 5 1/2 months old. If I give him this vaccine will it hurt him?

Hi RollinRice,

It should be fine to give your puppy a vaccination. The following site gives details on how to give vaccinations to dogs.

Some dogs do not have any reaction to vaccines. Others do though. Common reactions are a mild fever, decreased appetite, and depression. Some dogs experience a swelling at the injection site. This should resolve itself without the need for vet care.

Severe reactions are sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, swelling of the face and non-responsiveness. If these signs occur you should contact your vet immediately.   You can read about this here:
