• My puppy Sammie rose got her Lyme and dapp January 19th and she is super uncomfortable and I noticed both injection sites are very swollen and warm is it normal and can I do anything for her

    Hi April,
    If the swelling or pain is still present, I recommend that you take her into see a veterinarian if you have not already done so. The vaccines can sometimes make them uncomfortable but the swelling like you are describing is not usually seen. This can be a localized vaccine reaction that may need treatment. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of this and the treatment that she needs after they have examined her.

Need more information or advice?
