Puppy Sick After Parvo Shot?

A woman holding a sick puppy.My puppy is 11 weeks old. I gave her the parvo shot yesterday and now 24 hours later, she is sick? She is just so tired and looks depressed and just wants to be held. Not not eating or drinking, no water. She's cold even wrapped up in a blanket. She's not foaming.

First: your vet should have provided information on what to expect after your puppy received her shot. I'm sorry they did not do this but now you need to try and make a 'report' on what has happened each day since she received her shot.
Call your vet and provide this information so they can advise you what actions you need to take ASAP.
Your puppy has to have fluids so you need to figure out how to give her water even if it is one of those little push/pull type medicine tools. The drug stores have them. Just hold her mouth open a little and push the water into her mouth. Hold her head back until she swallows - do this often. Try a little ice cube in a bowl.

Try to keep her warm and provide water as much as possible. She can do without food for a few days but she must have fluids.

Information:
"Will vaccination make my dog sick?
Some dogs develop mild lethargy or soreness 1 to 2 days after vaccination. In the case of killed vaccines containing an adjuvant, lump formation may occur at the vaccination site. If this is painful or persists for more than a few weeks with no decrease in size, consult your veterinarian. A few dogs will develop more severe reactions that are forms of hypersensitivity (allergy). These will usually occur within minutes, but may be delayed for a few hours. The dog may salivate, vomit, develop diarrhea, hives, or have difficulty breathing. Should this occur, consult your veterinarian immediately."

It is not unusual for a puppy to feel a little unwell after receiving vaccinations, but these reactions rarely require treatment. Most symptoms will pass in 12-24 hours. If your puppy continues to feel bad and further, then please phone your veterinarian and describe what you are seeing. You will be advised whether or not to bring the dog in to be examined.
Even if the vaccine does work, it will not protect your puppy from parvo immediately. It usually requires ten to fourteen days before a reasonable level of protection is established.

But sometimes the vaccine may not work.
Exposure to the virus can play a role in vaccine failure. If your puppy comes into contact with the virus, he will develop an immune response. These antibodies can block the vaccine. Don't expose your puppy to areas where he might catch parvo. These areas include dog parks, pet stores, dog hotels and kennels, veterinary clinic (the most likely place to be exposed to parvo). Instead, keep your puppy close to home. Wait to visit parvo hotspots until your puppy is old enough for the shots to work.

Vaccines can also fail when your puppy is sick or stressed. When his immune system is compromised, he can't build an immune response. Vaccine failure can also happen in puppies with suppressed immune systems. Medications like steroids or antibiotics, deworming, poor nutrition put stress on your puppy's ability to protect and heal himself.

When your dog is stressed - which is very likely in the first few weeks he is with you - his body will be using up important resources to feed his stress hormones - Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Zinc. If your puppy is low on these important nutrients before the parvovirus vaccine is administered, his immune system may not respond the way it should. And this is critical to building up the antibodies that will protect him for life.

Titer tests determine whether your puppy has developed antibodies or not. If there is antibody in their blood test, then puppies are immune from the virus for a very long time. But be sure to wait at least 3 weeks before running the titer. Otherwise, the vaccine could inhibit titer levels until the immune system adjusts.

She could have a reaction to the shot. I would consult a vet if I were you.

If you received the shot from the Vet, there should be follow up info for this shot. Each puppy/dog reacts different to shots. Give them a call or visit to resolve this issue with your fur baby.

This is a puppy, and it is very important to at least take in fluids.
