• My dog got his booster for Lepto on Monday the 15th. It is now Easter Sunday and he has a lump at the injection site. It's about the size of a 50 cent piece. Should I be concerned? He is acting normal and doesnt seem to care if I touch it. Is there something I should give him? He is approximately 69lbs and 7 months old.

    Hi Trisha,
    If the lump is still present I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. A lump at the injection site can be from a few different things including a localized vaccine reaction, inflammation, or even infection. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the swelling and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
