Hi again. Today Bentley is going in for his booster shots i think its the distemper and i could be wrong but parvo. Will he be sick and sore after like i remember my children being after they had their shots? Also do they make you hold them and watch this? I dont think i could hold him i would feel to bad for him. But seems like he would be more comfortable and not so scared if i was with him. Oh boy ive been thinking obout this all morning . He came with the shots he needed at the time i bought him so now its my turn to get the boosters he needs for 11 weeks. Poor little guy he doesnt even know whats obout to happen to him.
Will they tell me the side effects when im there? and do most dogs get the side effects or is it just something that can happen? I do thank you again for your time.... theresa
He will be fine, poor baby. Its like being a new mommy all over again isn't it? ha!! The next time he goes to the vet you can pretty well know he will know where he is going. Mine whine all the way up there. Thank goodness I am just about 5min. from my vet. Then, on the way home they are happy as can be. But, he will do just fine, maybe alittle sore.
Thanks for the help. We are leaving for the vet in a half hour and my stomach is in knots. Yes it is like having a baby all over again. So i worry obout everything..lol I just dont want him to think i did it and then hes upset with me. I have my husband give him a bath and Bentley ignores him for a hour or so after, so i dont want him to think its me thats doing this to him. So he does get upset and wont give you kisses or anything just walks away from you..lol Little stinker, Anther thing i was going to ask and forgot. What do you do when all these people come up to you and want to hold your puppy? even the staff there does it and i hate it. Bentley dont like it at all and i cant say no but i wish i knew how to say it nicely. When i took him in for his check up shorlty after i got him the whole store wanted to hold him, the cashiers came out from behind there counters to hold him and the vet receptionists all 3 of them and the nurses and the shoppers. He hates it and i havnet taken him there since. (petsmart) And now today were going back for the shots so im assuming im giong to have to deal with all the questions of what kind of dog and how much i paid and where i got him and all the kids wanting to hold him and adults to believe me its rude i think that they would come up and ask to hold your puppy. Cant he get sick from other dogs and people? I even had him in his carrier and they still wanted me to get him out so they could see him better. I want to put him on his collar lead thing my husband got me for valentines day but then hes out in the open and then i go threw everyone wanting to hold him. Should i let them? yes it does make me uncomfortable gosh hes like my baby and i dont like everyone holding him. Am i just being over protective?? thanks again. theresa
My puppy got pretty sick after his first distemper shot. He was sleeping and seemed out of it for about 2 days. Finally, i took him to the vet, and he gave him a shot from soreness. After that, he was back to his normal self.
Good luck with pup! Let us know how it goes. I have to take my pup for his 2nd shot in a week- I am NOT looking forward to it.
Where back oh lordy thats heart wrenching!! The nurses kept saying oh hes so lovey and im thinking this poor little guy has no idea whats going to happen to him. My heart was thumping while we waited for the doctor i thought i was going to have a panic attack..LOL The doctor told me the little dogs are the yelpers and i started to say oh well come back later..lol just wanting to get him out of there. We'll the first shot he didnt whimper or anything but the doctor told me lots of times they have delayed reaction so the second shot oh boy he started crying and yelping and my heart was breaking i kept saying its ok i thought if he heard my voice he wouldnt be so scared. Then they handed him to me and he was going crazy! Trying to get out of my arms he was terified! But i got his blanket out and put it around him and he calmed down. This isnt fun im telling ya. And now he needs to go back in 3 weeks for anther booster. Im sending my husband this time. Bentleys gained weight since the last time he was there i think it was 1/31 and weighed 2.3 lbs and today he weighed a whopping 3.4 lbs. and again got a clean bill of health. Bentley was really clingy on the way home i let him ride up front with his blanket in the front seat but he scootched over to my seat and cuddled up and i talked to him the whole way home. He is taking a nap right now im sure the little guy is beat. This is the second set of shots hes had so im assuming if he was going to have a reaction it would of happend before ? The vet gave me this heart worm medicine and wants me to give it to him to split the chewable in half i guess its for a pup but up to 25 lbs so he siad to break it in half. Will he take it ? well thank you for your help and your advice. Boy i was a wreck earlier and now were both in need of a nap..LOL thanks again to all that helped. theresa
