Harley had his second vet visit yesterday (since we bought him). He is now 14 weeks old, and was due for his last Parvo and Distemper shots. We had already suspected that Harley is prone to car sickness. He had never thrown up during the car ride, but a bit afterwards. We always feed him at 7 AM, and we leave for work at 7:30. My boyfriend, Evan, takes Harley to work with him 3 days a week, and Harley had once gotten sick a bit after they got to Evan's office.
Well, Harley got sick after getting to Evan's office yesterday morning. Evan took him to the vet for his shots around noon, and Harley threw up about an hour after getting back to the office. A couple hours later, Evan got him to eat about 1/6 of a cup of dry food, but he threw that up around 4:00. After that one, Evan called the vet's office and told them about Harley's vomiting, so they suggested we take him back in. After picking me up from work, we got half way to the vet's office, and Harley threw up again in his travel crate.
The vet thought that Harley's vomiting might have been a combination of the car rides and the vaccinations. Harley rides in the truck 3 times a week, and had never thrown up more than once in one day from it. She gave him a shot of an anti-inflammatory to help with any kind of reaction he may have had from the vaccines, plus she gave us a 3 day prescription of an anti-vomiting syrup, to be given 3 times a day. We have to measure it in a dropper and force it in his mouth. He doesn't like it much. He was able to hold down some rice mixed with a bit of wet puppy food last night, and held his food down today. We haven't fed him his regular dry food today, only rice and wet food.
Has your Corgi ever had a reaction to a vaccine or medication before? The tech at the vet's office said this isn't the first Corgi she has ever seen have a vaccine reaction.
