  • I treat my dogs like kids -when they get shots i just snuggle in and stay home. After being stressed out at the vets they appreciate that. I just figure like a body part on a human can be sore after a shot, it could be that way for an animal.

    I don't remember ever being told that it takes x hours until a shot becomes effective, if that's what you're worried about just ask your vet.

  • I got my dog a vaccine about a month ago. She is 8 and doesn't even flinch when she gets them! So for her, it is normal activities...

  • I think that when you get a shot you should work out that area of the body. Allowing an animal to run and play makes the pain go away faster. But a little TLC doesn't hurt either.
