Took Doddi into the vet Saturday, she sliced her leg open on something. She had a distemper shot and 3 year rabies as well. They had to put her out to fix the leg. That is about healed. Now we noticed that just behind her shoulders is a lump. I did not notice it there before. I am sure that the shot was given by the neck. Could this be a reaction to the shots? Should I be worried? It is right above the spine. My wife thinks it has gotten bigger but I haven't noticed that.
One of our GSP's gets a lump at the site of the injection.
If you are concerned, call your vet, but I bet that there will be no concern.
I posted a couple weeks back, regarding the same thing.. The lump was near Beans Injection site. I noticed it a week after her vaccination. One week and it was gone. I did not take her to the Vet, but would have, if I hadn't suspected the Shot was the cause, or had it lasted longer.
I did go to the vet once for a fairly large injection site lump from a Lyme vaccine (the first I had witnessed in 6-7 dogs so it scared me). She said it was nothing to worry about, they show up and get larger up to 10 days after the injection and last 3-5 days before disappearing. His was gone in a few days.
