Default behavior after getting shots????

I took Jolie to the vet today to get her second shots, she was fine after the visit. After about an hour she was fine and running around. Well she just woke up from her nap and I tried to pick her up and she started yelping. I tried a second time a minute later thinking maybe she just didn't like the way I picked her up but she still yelped. (she got her shots around her shoulder) I don't feel anything when I light rub her around where the shot was. Now I'm scared something is wrong and I don't know if its just sore or what. Any help given is extremely appreciated!!

It is normal for them to be kind of tender for a few days after the shots.
Just keep an eye on her incase she starts swelling up or having trouble breathing or seems like all she wants to do is sleep.
If any of those things happen call your vet ASAP.

I hope she feels better soon!

ahh please dont worry this is completely normal, when mylo had his second shot he was fine then all of a sudden if i even tried to touch him he yelped, he held his head down and was shaking, i started crying thinkin he was dying, i rang the emergency vet and she said its normal for him to be doing this. I was sooo worried though, it was only like a week after getting him i thought oh god, hes really ill. It wears off after a good sleep he was fine..

Dolly did the same thing. She also threw up in the car on the way home. It was a miserable experience the whole way round...my big dogs don't even flinch, but EVERYTHING is different with a chi.

You could call the vet about a little baby aspirin or something...that might help.

When they are bigger, it's not so bad. I'm dreading Dolly's shots this month, but she weighs 2 1/2 lbs more than the last booster, so hopefully, it won't be as bad.

Poor Bu has the worst time with his shots. He really feels them. All he does is sleep for a couple days... he loves my bed. But his second rabies is what gave me a scare. I really thought we were losing him with that. The doc said I could have given him benedryl.

Chica was Ok after her shots, but the vet warned me that she could be sore. I would just keep a close eye to see how your baby feels now. It sound totally normal to me. Just like how some people have sorness or brusing when they have an injection or give blood. Good luck!
