Lacey had her rabies shot 2 months ago and STILL has a large lump at the injection site. Is it normal after all this time?

I know it's pretty common to get a lump from the rabies shot.
The longest I've witnessed it last is about 8 weeks.
Is it getting at least a little smaller?

One of my dogs actuallly had the 'lump' removed as it didn't get smaller and I wasn't positive it was in the exact spot of the rabies. Turned out to be an encapsulated cyst, probably from the rabies. Lets hope that never happens again. It was months later that the surgery was done. Sue

Stupid rabies shot =( That's why I am only doing titers now. I just don't like these injections and sadly, what IS a normal side effect. It is really common for them to last that long... but I just don't like it lol!
