I have never experienced this before, out of a litter of 9 puppies 5 of them had an allergic reaction to the 6 weeks vaccination shots (we think)? Two of the pups have recovered within 2 days and are normal but 3 are like they are paralised in their back legs, their legs just flop and they have no feeling what so ever, their alert and eating well, can anyone tell me if this has happened to any of their greyhound pups after their first vaccination at 6 weeks, as I have welped many litters and this has never happened before. I would be very appreciative to any experiences.
Allergic reactions in dogs are fairly rare, especially when considering how many millions of vaccinations are given annually. If I had a litter of 9 puppies, and 5 of them had an allergic reaction, I'd come to one of two conclusions.
First, there's a chance that the two parents together passed down a recessive gene to their offspring that made them extraordinarily sensitive to vaccines, which isn't a good thing as they'd be far higher risk for potentially deadly diseases like Parvovirus and distemper.
Second, if you did the vaccine yourself at home, then perhaps the vaccine itself is from a bad stock and is what's caused this adverse reaction. Actually I suppose the veterinarian could have bad stock as well, though if that were the case, your puppies wouldnt' be the only ones having the reactions, any puppies that had been given the vaccine could potentially have a reaction.
I've personally never heard of so many puppies from a single litter being effected like this, and don't know anyone else who has either. Have you run any kind of CBC or chem panel 12 on any of the paralyzed puppies to see if their blood counts are off, or if any chemicals in their body are extraordinarily high or low? Heck I'd look into having titers done as well on one of the pups, just to see what the results were.
Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
