View Full Version : First injection question

24th February 2012, 05:30 PM
Lucy our 11 week pup had her first injection this morning and has been very sleepy and quiet all day, just a bit worried, is this normal. I dont remember Tilly our 6 month old being this sleepy or quiet when she had hers done. Lucy is definetly not herself and is not playing much today. Tilly tried to get her interested in some play earlier buut she just kept whimpering, so im presuming shes still a bit sore where the needle went in. Shes is eating and drinking ok. Does this sound normal for after a first injection?

Yes it is normal, your vet should have told you this to save you the worry. They generally say that they might be a bit lethargic afterwards but if it last more than a day or two, go back to the vet.

I don't think Bentley had that reaction but my human babies certainly did!
