What seemed like a routine day...


Today we hads some excitement
Miss Iz went to get her second set
of shots no big deal....easy peasy

she got weighed a cub at 18.4
got my shots and was adorable 
everyone at the office
loved the pup

Well we got home 
and something didn't look right
and I realized her eye was swelling
in the time it took me to to call the 
Vet and drive the 5 min ride
to the office her face doubled in size
 and she was having a hard time breathing
She got both benedryl and steroids 
to counteract the reaction her face


He felt she was having a reaction
to the lepto shot (Leptospirosis, a contagious disease 
affecting both animals and humans and spread by
 infection with a bacterial pathogen called Leptospira,
 may result in chronic liver and kidney disease 
and fatality in the dog.) she hadn't gotten it b/4
since it is optional she won't be getting it again
 Her next set of shots she will get prophylactic
 benedryl just in case
After her shots she stayed at the office 
for a cpl of hrs - I'm sure her butt never saw the floor
she'll be on steroids and antihistamine for a few days
