Tal has gotten two shots since february, one when he was neutered and the other when he recently had a bacterial infection.
Not a big deal, but i was wondering if your Labs got a knot at the injection site? Not knowing the first time what the knot was, I took him in and the vet gave him an anti inflammatory. The second time I didn't take him in and the knot disappeared in a couple of days.
I don't remember him getting anything like this when he got his rabies, parvo, etc. shots, but those were given between the shoulder blades. These have been given just forward of his left hip.
More curious than anything else if you have had any thing like this happen?
It happens in dogs and humans and it depends on the medicine. Tetanus shots in humans you don't get a knot right away but about a month later you get a massive one. I get them from flu shots.
Toby had a knot between his shoulder blades when he had his second round of puppy shots for about 3 or 4 days.
Zoe doesn't get them; however, our neighbor's terrier mix gets them. Doesn't seem to bother him.

Sam once had a shot just forward of his right hip, and a couple of weeks later I noticed a lump there. Since it had been a while, I didn't connect the two. I freaked out and posted here, and someone asked if he'd had a shot there in the last month. He was fine after a week or so.

that pretty much described this experience. The first one happened about a week after Tal's neuter surgery. The second was when he got an injection for dirrhea. I knew what that one was an it went away in about a week. I never thought to check between his shoulder blades after his puppy shots so i don't know if he developed one then or not...Originally Posted by bibber
:-X I hate to say this, but when LeRoy, Lady, Talley, Spike - all RIP, and now Auggie have gotten shots of any kind by my veterinarian that we have been with for 22 years........nothing...What happens when your dog gets an injection?
