Ok, the Vet told me that Hershey may act sluggish and such from the shots yesterday, but I figured he'd do fine. I have noticed through the night that he is acting strange.

I got up a little while ago and he was just lying in his bedding. So he always gets hyped up when I start talking to him, but not now. He is acting like he can't move well and hold his head up well. He had even peed in his bedding, he has always got over on the pee pad to do his business. :(

I got in the floor over in front of his pen and picked him up. I set him on the floor and he walked fairly well (a little unsteady though), peed and pooped on the floor, but wouldn't play at all. Just sat back down looking at me. Not like him at ALL. He is usually completely crazy hyper when he sees me or I talk to him and when let out of his pen.

If I call him he will kinda lift his head to look at me, then it just falls back down again. Maybe it's normal and I'm just overly worried??? Anyone experience anything like this with their pups shots? Couldn't be anything else. He stays in the pen unless we are right with him. Should I call the Vet asap??? I'm not doing well here..... :(

Hi Everyone,

Sorry it's taken a while for me to reply. Well, good news, Hershey is doing fine now! A couple hours after I posted about his condition, he started improving greatly. I called the Vet anyway and they said that the shots sometimes would do that, and since he was doing well again, just to keep an eye out. They said to call if he started acting that way again. Or if there was swelling or loose poop or anything.

He is playing, eating, peeing and pooping on the wee pad (when he is in his pen anyways :roll: ) and acting just like normal. Sure did give me a scare! I was SO glad when he started acting normal again. Thank you all for the concern and advice. I appreciate it so much. You're the best! :wave:

YAY HERSHEY!! Way to bounce back!!! Next time, do your bouncing before everyone has a panic attack, please! :lol:
Yep, my thoughts exactly! For one instant, when he was acting funny, I thought, no way I can live without Him! Then I thought, don't over-react Jenn.... calm down... I'm just SO thankful he is feeling all happy and hyper again. We got him a couple new toys and a new bed today. I'll get pics soon to post in Pictures. The bed is a cat bed that has a rounded top, so he can snuggle back up in it. He loves it too. :D It keeps drafts of air off him, so I thought that would be good. Ok..... gonna grab the camera now. LOL! :lol:
