    Dog crying after getting shots

    My dog has been whimpering and crying sense she got her shots. She got shots in both of her front legs, but now that she's home, I can see she's limping a small bit, and she starts to cry if you touch them. Right now she isn't very playful, she walks slow and just looks sad, and when you get her she sits on your lap and just crys. Any advice?

    Watch for an allergic reaction, (swelling) but otherwise if she is not better by morning I would take her to the vet, usually shots don't hurt unless they get rabies vaccine.

    In all the years I have had dogs, I've never heard of, or had dogs that had their(yearly) shots in the front legs. It does sound like a painful place to have shots, as there is not much meaty/skin area. I hope she has recovered, and I would allow her shots to be given there,unless she has a leg problem. If they continue giving her regular shots there, they will cause a leg problem..

    Well, she got better later in the day, but she could have just been a crybaby. But she is doing better now, and is currently in puppy daycare while I'm on vacation, but thank you for all of the help with this!
    Even if it might've been a false alarm.

    I would suggest for you to consult a vet doctor, I am sure they will be able to help you with this.
