lump after vaccine?
I have a 15 week old pit bull.
She had her 3rd set of vaccines exactly a week ago and she still has the lump on her shoulder blades. Is this normal?
Yes, it's actually fairly common for a puppy to have a mild reaction of some kind to being vaccinated.
A lump/swelling at the site of the injection itself is not unusual and although it may remain for several weeks, is generally nothing to worry about.
However, if a puppy develops lumps/hives over her whole body after being vaccinated, it signifies an allergic reaction and may require veterinary attention.
You can find out more about puppy vaccinations and possible reactions on my Puppy Shots page.
Best of luck with your little girl.
