I took Smidgen and Chassis in for there shots on Saturday morning, and about an hour later little Chassis was having a bad reaction ! She is so small, 2.7 lbs. Her little face was all swullen up and she had whelts on her and I had to rush her to emergency. They gave her a shot of anti flamitory. I tell you we were never so worried about her. Smidgen had a slight reaction, I could tell she didn't feel well, but she didn't have any swelling. I asked the vet why Chassis would have such a reaction and he said that they should have given her less of a dose, and not a 6&1 and a rabbies all in one day.. I took thenm to the Humane Soc. for there shots.. I guess I won't do that anymore...

That is exactly what happened to Poco when he got his shots. His eyes and cheeks sweeled all up and his ears flopped over for the first time ever the vet said to give him benadryl and he was fine after that. He's not small either he's just sensitive, he always gets sick with shots.

I hope they feel better right away.

I'm just glad that everyone is okay! I LOVE the name Smidgen, too. That's a great way to avoid a common name while describing a chi perfectly!

Thank's everyone

For your thoughts, we were very worried about Chassis. When I called the vet and asked about giving benadryl, they wouldn't tell me what or how much to give. I call a different vet to take her to emergency. He told me she would take about 1 mg of it. I didn't want to take any chances and took her right in. But now I am afraid to have there shots done again when it is time. I thought I was a wreck, you should have seen my husband. He is sooo attached to her...
