I took Napoleon to the Vet this morning for his vaccinations. This is what he looked like an hour after we got home. He was scratching his eyes and there were welts on his eyelids. He had an allergic reaction last year, too, and his face had swollen up and we had to bring him back three times in one day. This time, they gave him a anti-inflammatory shot first to counteract his allergy, but obviously it didn't work.
I called the Vet and they told me to bring him back in. They took him from me when I walked in and had him for 20 minutes. The Vet gave him another anti-inflammatory shot, checked his heart and lungs. I almost cried when they brought him back out. He looked horrible! The Vet said that she thinks it's the rabies shot and he probably should never get it again. They shouldn't have given him all 3 shots at once given his past history.
Now, he looks even worse 3 hours later. Look how puffed up he is. He keeps scratching his face because it itches. He also has welts on top of his head. I feel so bad for him. All he wants to do is lay on my lap, but he can't keep still. He keeps having these weird jerky movements and can't get comfortable. I will be keeping a close eye on him in case it gets worse and we have to bring him into the Emergency Vet Hospital. Please think good thoughts for Napoleon's speedy recovery.
