Re: Lump after vaccination booster


I really don't know, but it could be I suppose. Maybe if the vet was a bit heavy handed he might have caused some bruising or trauma at the site of the jab? I'm glad it's going down and she seems fine in herself, so hopefully it will just go. I'm sure it's a bit of bruising and some fluid must have built up as protection that's all.

Re: Lump after vaccination booster


My Inca was the same, she had her booster in March, 2 days later she had an egg size lump on the back of her neck where she had been vaccinated. It went down within a couple of days and didn't seem to bother her at all....I think I was more concerned about it than she was.

Re: Lump after vaccination booster


I don't know what could have caused it, maybe a bit of reaction as you say.
When I was nursing I gave literally hundreds of Tetanus injections, never had a problem. Then one day I had to give one to my hubby. Well his arm, like yours, swelled up like a balloon. He would never let me near him after that

Sounds like a common injection site reaction. They often take a few weeks to dissappear, but never cause any harm. Id leave it and see how it goes, unless of course it changes or bothers the dog in any way.
Dawn.

I remember a flu jab I once had, my arm swelled up and I could hardly move it for a week! She was a great big bruiser of a nurse (not saying you are Jen!!!!)so I'm guessing that's what the problem is, it wasn't administered gently enough.

Re: Lump after vaccination booster


Thanks for the replies. You've all put my mind at rest. I'll keep an eye on over the next few days and if it's not gone by the end of the week or if she seems bothered, I'll take her back. I just don't remember her having any problems last year, but do seem to remember something the year before when she had her initial jabs.

I feel better knowing it has gone down a bit today. I did think the vet injected quite low down, it was lower down than where we put her frontline, so maybe the skin was just a bit more sensitive there.

Thanks again for the replies.

I know what you mean, me and mum were worried sick once we realised it was getting bigger. I was going to take her this morning to the vets, but Sunday's is 30 consultation fee, so was glad to feel it had got smaller.

Re: Lump after vaccination booster


As others have said sounds like a common injection site reaction - keep an eye on it and if it starts to bother her or begins to increase in size etc then it is probably worth a look but for now I'd say nothing to worry about
