Vaccination Soreness

Merlin just had his 12 week vaccination. The poor guy's shoulder is so sore! It's awful. All it takes is for me to barely touch it and he cries. So, here are my questions: how much is too much soreness? And does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to alleviate the soreness? (If anything.) Right nowI'm just being extra careful when I pick him up, pet him, etc.

It's not unusual to have some pain at the injection site. It should be better in 24 hours. If not call your vet.

Ditto what Grabby said. Tribble used to be in horrible pain after vaccines. We had the vet give us rimadyl to manage it. He was usually fine with just one dose right before the injection. It helped a lot- no more screaming, crying puppy.

Thanks everyone! He's napping next to me at the moment and seems to be comfortable for the moment. Our family bichon Gizmo never had any soreness and Merlin was fine for his 9 week shot, so I wasn't expecting it to be quite this bad.

You might mention it to the vet next time he's due for a vaccination. Let them know when you make the appointment. Vets like to know when dogs have any kind of reaction to a vaccination.

Glad he's not as sore today.

Before you give the next shot I would recommend this. You can get it at any heath food store.
Take a dose of homeopathic Thuja Occidentalis 30C, immediately after vaccination (or at least within 2 hours), and then every 12 hours for a total of 3 doses (more is not necessary and may negate the benefits). Homeopathy is able to head off many adverse vaccine effects, including those that may appear months or many years later. Thuja is available at health food stores that carry homeopathic remedies, compounding pharmacies, and several excellent homeopathic sources can be found online.
