Please move if this is not appropriate:
He ended up getting the rabies vaccine the last day in December because he was overdue. Ever since he has gotten the vaccine he has been mean. Like
biting, and getting territorial. He has never done this before ever. He has bitten my husband, and he has been nippy with the kids, and he goes crazy
on me. This is if we want to pet him while he is laying down, or sometimes I used to be able to pick him up to take him outside, now if I try to do
that he runs and jumps on the couch and gets mean, by snapping, and biting me. He is a lap dog and he hasn't broken my skin, he doesn't bite very
hard. He didn't do this before he got his rabies shot, and now I am worried it could be the shot itself that has caused his change in behavior. I
have tried looking it up, but the only symptoms listed with the rabies shots are physical symptoms not mental.
I am considering calling the vet and asking her what she gave him, he has never been violent after a shot in the 5 years he has lived with us, and
everyday it's getting worse. What do you all think? Do you all think it's because he's traumatized after the shot or the shot itself. Has anyone
vaccinated their dog with the rabies shot recently and gotten the same effects???
Any input besides the one I have already considered
would be great!
