Puppy Sick After Getting Shots

My puppy just got his shots, he's 6 weeks old. He threw up and keeps having the runs! One minute he's playful and the next minute he's not and won't move at all! Please tell me what should I do? I don't think it's the food, we changed his food 3 times.

I hope you have already taken your puppy back to see the vet as this can only be diagnosed by a professional. This could be mild or it could be life threatening so see the vet ASAP.

Hopefully your puppy is all better and you have nothing to worry about but if not, read some of these notes.

When I take the 6 week old puppies for shots my vet warns me this can happen. He tells me that the dog won't have energy for the day and could have some vomiting and diarrhea. I am told to expect this for the first day.

However, if this continues for two days or longer I am to take the dog back immediately. I have never had this issue with my dogs. I think I would call your vet immediately and tell them what is happening to the puppy.

You want to make sure this dog is not infected with parvo. I would rather be safe than sorry. Call the vet, especially if there is blood in the stool.

I would worry about a serious illness like parvo. Definitely go to the vet. Good luck

I would call the vet back and ask for advice.It is probably normal the first few days.
