I know a few Vets frequent these pages and hopefully a couple could chime in.
I have had bella for 3 weeks now. she is doing great. Eating ,playing pooping and learning.as well as growing.she had her 1st shots 4 days after i got her at 6 weeks old.at that time she had slightly swollen lymph nodes in the neck.
now here is where iam concerned. i read that a vet should not vaccinate a dog that is sick.and lymph nodes show that her immune system is fighting something off.
now when i took her in i showed my vet her lymph nodes and he said they were "slightly" swollen and he vaccinated her anyway. everything checked out well. no worms, no fever etc. he said she might of had a slight cold.
I called last week and told him that the lymph nodes were still swollen.his response was that he didnt think it was anything serious.asked how she was doing. i said ,she is playing,eating and pooping all normal. he said if she acted lethargic to bring her in if not he will look again at her nodes when i bring her in for her 2nd shots.
should she have been vaccinated with the swollen glands? i do believe and trust in my vet and he gave me the impression that it wasn't serious. i did read that some vets will vaccinate a puppy with a minor illness (infected ear etc).
the other thing is what iam feeling,maybe they arent really to swollen? should you be able to feel them in a normal state? and last but not least,do i worry to much?
thank you for all the help
