I recently had my dog vaccinated against lymes disease and after the second shot I noticed some worrisome changes. She has always been a voracious eater and lost her appetite. I left a bowl of food down for 2 days and she didn't touch it and I also noticed a high temperature on her skin but didn't have a thermometer to confirm. She was drinking water and didn't seem to have any changes in behaviour (no lethargy) but the lack of appetite worried me enough to bring her into the vet after a week. The vet said her temp was within the normal range and they didn't notice any swelling in the shoulder they vaccinated her in and said she was fine. It has been 4 days and her appetite is still not back and the glands behind her ears are swollen. She is also teething, so I'm not sure if that would cause the lymph nodes to swell and lack of appetite but I'm worried she's having a reaction to the vaccine. The vet didn't give her a blood test, just the exam, and I'm wondering if I'm just over reacting. She is due to have her distemper shot in 3 days and I'm not sure if I should tax her anymore. What would you recommend?
