9 week checkup

Today Rufus had his 9 week well puppy check, and the vet said he looked great, but he is not doing so great now that we are back home. Since about 3 hours after receiving shots he has been lethargic and he whimpers if you try to pick him up. I have let him stay in his crate, and he hasn't asked to come out once since we got home at 1pm. I did take him out to use the bathroom, but he came right back in and layer down. My question is, has anyone else had problems like this? Should I give him Tylenol? The breeder didn't mention any problem with the first set of shots or dewormer. Thanks!!

Never give any meds without first discussing with the vet.

I would contact your vet and let them know your pup may be having a reaction to the shots.

Please contact your vet ASAP or an emergency vet if your vet isn't available.

I always gave Benadryl about a half an hour before the shots. Each time when I made the appt I called the vet and asked for the appropriate dosage.
Some puppies like poor Charlie on this forum had a bad reaction to them. I do know of two people in my area whose puppies (smaller breeds) passed away due to the shots.

So scary! I always stay at the clinic for 30min after vaccines. I used to work in a clinic and SO many times, more with the small breeds we'd see reactions. It was almost always and allergic reaction to the rabies vaccine where they'd usually develop hives. Either way, I've seen it enough that I'm now paranoid and stay 30 min, read a magazine.
Brew after his shots was tired and I think his muscle was sore because he too would whimper if he was picked up and had any pressure at the injection site.

First of all, welcome to the Forum! Please do a search here on the forum for what's toxic for pets. For example, one should NEVER give Tylenol to a dog! Tylenol=Toxic (just remember the 2 Ts)

And, most importantly, ALWAYS check with your vet first before giving ANY meds to a dog.

Thank you for all the advice! I had googled Tylenol and it said that you could give it by weight dose, that was the only reason I mentioned it. Rufus returned to his normal rambunctious self after a good nap. Was really worried for a bit! I am an ER nurse and can handle sick folks all day long, but get a little nervous with my sick pup!

I'm surprised at everyone saying to contact the vet. Milla just got her shots the other day and that is exactly what the vet said would happen. She said she would probably be tired and maybe a little lethargic for a day or 2. She did nap a lot the first day then seem fine after that. Its also what has always been told to us when we take our cats in and when we took our old dog in. All different vets.

acetaminophen (Tylenol) used only occasionally on people Has led to many liver failiures, and significant liver damage in humans. To use even small ammounts on dogs, especially puppies is even worse and could make him sicker, i wouldnt do benadryll either, most of these arent going to help him heal, they will just make him feeler slightly better temporarily, or make worse side effects. I would just contact your vet, side effects to vaccines are fairly common, especially with non core ones such as lyme, rabies, bordatella, and lepto, Most pups will be fine in a day or 2
