Tucker had his yearly boosters at the end of May. The vet that administered the shots gave them in the rib-cage area. Tucker developed 2 lumps, one much larger than the other. The larger one was originally almost the size of a golf ball and is still slightly visible. Next year we will be sure to see the other vet (there are 2 at the clinic we go to). The girls who work there said that they don't know why this particular vet gives the shots in the rib area, but recommended that next year we see the other vet on staff because dogs don't develop these lumps when he gives the vaccinations.

The vet who gave the shots in May said not to worry about any lumps unless they got as big as a golf ball. The girls at the clinic said that sometimes these lumps wind up having to be drained. How traumatic that would be. I don't know why this vet won't change the location where he gives the injections, but we won't see him next year, that's for sure.
