    Yes, We will be pre-medicating her before her shots and then I will be watching to make sure the reaction doesn't get out of hand afterwards. You are right - A reaction like this is not to be taken lightly. Given the reaction from the vet - I could tell it was very serious - and I am happy that she made it through. Does anyone else not vaccinate their dogs? and is it safe to take them outside if they are not fully vacinated? I take our big dog to a dog park in a near by neighbourhood and have been dying to take Sadie with me but have been waiting until she is vaccinated as I would hate for her to get anything that is preventable. (Parvo, rabies, kennel cough).

    I have always done puppy shots. Around here Parvovirus is rampant and I would not take my puppy out in an area with lots of dogs until he finished his shots. I once lost a dog to parvovirus. He got it as a very, very young puppy at the breeders. He survived it but the parvovirus reoccurrred and he died.

    Protect your puppy.

    Update - We will be looking for a new vet.
    I went for our vet appointment today and after waiting 45 minutes finally got in to see the vet - Who refused to administer the vaccinations due to the fact that he didn't have any anti-histimines on site. I'm not mad that he refused the vaccinations - I'm mad that a vet can operate without these on hand. He told me they wouldn't have any until next weekend. What happens if someone's dog has a severe reaction while it is there? Why wasn't I told before we waited 45 minutes? Any insight from anyone? Should we seek a alternative vet - or should we wait for the meds to come in? I just wanted to get them done so I can start taking her out and socializing her with other dogs and people.

    What else do you suppose they are out of, besides common sense? I wouldn't go back, either.

    I have tried not to say much as I have such an issue with vaccinations but I have not cared much for some of the things you have posted about this vet before this last episode. If there is a holistic vet in you area you may want to try them, if not yes a new vet is in order.

    I just wanted to update everyone on Sadie and her Vet issues. I have found a new vet who I love. He was very good with Sadie and her reactions. They gave her a anti-histamine before the vaccinations to attempt to prevent a reaction this time around and Told me I could follow up with Gravol at home for the next couple of days. Sadie is now up to date on her shots - Including her rabies and is good for another year. And as of this morning - she hasn't shown any signs of a reaction to the vaccinations. Thank you everyone for your advice on seeking a vet I could trust. It really helped me in taking the steps Sadie needed. I am so looking forward to taking her to the dog park. Anyone know how long after the shots you should wait before taking the dog outside?

    Thanks for checking back. I tried to find out when it's safe to take him out. I would ask your vet. I think it depends which number of vaccination this is.
