Freddie has just been for his first injection and now we're home, he is screeching in pain whenever i put my hand anywhere near his neck.

Hope this is normal..!?

Ninja did the same with her first injection she is close to 3 years old now but at the time it scared me to death. She didnt scream but yelped whenever touched. Let your chi have a nap for a few hours but if no better ring the vet for advise. :)

I have seen this before, in Jades litter all the puppies screamed and yelped while turning in circles, it seemed to be giving them a burning sensation they all including Jade screamed loudly. She and her brother continue to do this for evey vaccine, vet didnt show concern so I honestly didnt ask but they are all alive and well lol I think it may be the size of the needle but thats just my guess, im not sure. It breaks my heart to see it but if for the best, I wouldnt worry too much unless it continues for more than a couple hours.

I phoned the 24hr hospital last night and they said not to worry too much but go back to the vets if its still bad today. He not as bad this morning but he still clearly doesn't like being picked up or stroked too much. And he's been very hyper... Not sure if thats a side effect as well?

He just seems to have changed quite a bit ever since the injection.. :(

I agree, alhough he yelps if you touch the area some chis experience painful local reactions. Also with the distemper vaccines some dogs get side effects of the virus, as with all vaccines they are getting a small amount of it so maybe a mood change can be a side effect, it affects their nervous system. I would just keep an eye on him..

Yay !! What a relief ... It hurts so much to see our babies in pain and its weird how dogs take the injections differently. The area still may be a little sensitive for a few days but I'm happy to hear your baby if feeling better now ;)
