Okay, so Abby has this lump sort of near her abdomen, it's about 4 inches away from her tail on the top. It's right near where the vet gave her shots a couple weeks ago. So it was starting to worry me, so my mom called the vet and they said it's normal and all animals get them and if it doesn't go away by next week, we could bring her in without charge. Reason being, is she took blood from Abby w/out our permission and were not sure if that's what could have caused the reaction or not. The vet said some word that's it called, it begins with B, anyone know? Anyways, the lump doesn't seem to be going away and I was wandering if anyone else experienced this with there dog after getting vaccinated and what they did about it.

Thanks!

I wish I had answer but I don't.... it sounds like it might just be a slight reaction... but if they aren't going to charge you for the visit I might just take her in.

I've seen that happen quite frequently, but it's usually gone after about 24 hours. I usually rub the area right after I give them a shot, and that helps it dissipate quickly. How long did you say it's been there?

Shadow would get them when he got shots, but they always went away the next day. I just keep a eye on it and make sure it's not causing them any pain, but I think there are some vaccinations that cause dogs to react like that.

YES...take a close look at this pic of Koda...he had this huge knot just like you're describing show up right after his vaccinations...the vet said it's normal, and after a few weeks it just went away. Here is what it looked like :

Thanks everyone and it looks just like the picture of Koda that you showed me except on her back near her tail. It's been there for a couple weeks. It doesn't bother her at all and it's not growing or anything. I'm 99.9% sure it's from the vaccine. If it doesn't go away by next week, were getting it checked out. I'm going to be up set if this has something to do with all those shots she gave her and I know a lot of dogs get them. But this vet, she poked and prodded Abby with shots and never told me what she was doing or bother to ask my mom in the waiting room (since I am a minor). She took a lyme disease vaccination, which I never wanted, and that's the only shot Abby's never had before and I bet that's what it from. Well I hope it goes away, I think it's getting smaller. But i'll keep you up-dated.

Yeah, it took a couple of weeks for Koda's to go away, and it was from his 7 in 1 shot. The vet said it's so strong that they can do that. It never bothered Koda. Hope she gets better soon!!!

Gracie also got lumps from each of her needles. They were usually relatively small, maybe pea size and hard at ther vaccination site. Sometimes they lasted a week or so. Vet said it was to be expected and gently massaging the site can help them to go away.

That's funny! I JUST noticed a nickel sized lump on the back of Kendra, its on her right side, in between her spine and leg, RIGHT where she got her 3 year Rabies Vaccination. The Humane Society in the city I live in had a clinic on the 20th of May, nine days ago, and it was for Rabies Vaccinations and City Dog and Cat License's. I took Kendra to get her Rabies Vaccination, 3 year booster, because it was ONLY $6.00! It was early, she wasn't due until July, but hell, who wouldn't want to save money on their animal vaccinations!?!? I was getting REALLY worried until I read this thread! Thank you for posting it and for all the replies, because i'm SURE that is what her lump is from, because it is EXACTLY where they did the injection!
Thanks again you guys for the post and replies, helps me out A LOT and yes I am still going to watch the site and as long as it goes away I will be fine, but if it DOESN'T then I will be taking her to the vet. Thanks again.
