? for Vets
My 16 week old blm went in for his lyme booster, distemper and rabies vaccine. Shortly after getting his shots I knew something was wrong. I took him back in and they gave him a shot of adrenaline and a shot of the vets version of benadryl. He is now drinking and peeing ALOT! Does the adrealine or benadryl cause the heavy drinking and peeing? My vet doesnt seem to sure.
Google canine benadryl side effects to dig deeper but this one is short explaination. The epi is short acting and should not stay around.
I always give one vaccine at the time, and wait a few weeks between them. If there is a reaction you will know which one it is.
Did the vet by chance also give a cortisol or steroid injection to treat the vaccine reaction. If steroids were give (for the anti inflammatory effect), increased water intake and increased urine output are major side effects of those drugs.
