Bordatella shot.. allergic reaction..
First off, I want to make it clear that I am working with my vets (regular + emergency) and following their instructions to the letter.
Has anyone had a problem with bordatella shots? Tashi hadn't ever had one before, as her groomer kept her in a seperate kennel and she went in very early in the morning while there weren't other clients. I might need to go to Korea for a week this year, so I got her bordatella in case I need boarding.
She's been through a lot in the last 24 hours.
First, I took her to the vet where he poked her with a needle and dripped another vaccine in her nose.
Then, several hours later, she had a reaction to the vaccine. I was trying to sleep at around 2am, and she was trying to dig to China starting with my head. She was panting non-stop, digging, and generally acting strange.
I realized something was definitely wrong, got out of bed and called the vet.
They told me to go get a thermometer.
I tried the normal pharmacies first (where I could park right out front and leave her in the car for 3-4 minutes without worrying) and all were closed. So we had to brave Wal-Mart. No way in hell am I leaving my Yorkie in the car in the parking lot, so I take her in. I explained my situation to the guy at the front and he let me in no problem. While I'm checking out, an employee in a scooter spends 5 minutes scolding me as I apologize profusely and explain my situation. I can't leave her unattended there. She keeps going and finally I tell her to leave me the heck alone.
On the car ride home my Tashi pukes all over my lap.
I get home and have to jam a thermometer up her bum (not before having to wake my sleeping room mate to ask for lube). After which, I have to force feed her Benadryl.
She's asleep at the moment.. but I feel like she's looking at me as though I am the embodiment of evil. I just feel terrible for her
I'm really questioning my decision to get her bordatella vaccine.

Ahhh, poor Tashi! Hope she's feeling better now (and you!). If I'm not mistaken the bordetella is what they squirted up her nose, do you know what the shot was?
