parvo and pom puppys
And I found him at the animal shelter...they gave him his parvo shot and he's 6-7 months old and when i brought him home he was very passive and didnt move or anything just feel asleep there and then when it was time for bed he started to puke and i though it was just cuz the food....maybe he wasnt use to the food i fed him....then the next day he would drink some water then puke it back up and every time he eats and drinks he g ets sick and im worried and he has a vet's appointment but thast a good bit away and i want to no if i should just go ahead and go or if its not that bad just normal for a small breed to react that way to a shot

I'd take him in to the vet as soon as possible just to be sure. It's rare, but some dogs have bad reactions to vaccines, some mild, some serious. If he can't eat or drink without puking it back up, he'll need to see a vet to figure out what's wrong and decide a course of action.

I agree completely with Charlie. I would take him in as soon as possible.
It's normal for some dogs, especially puppies and small dogs, to be a bit tired or quiet after a round of shots, but reactions like this are abnormal and need to be treated like a serious issue to be extra safe.
It's definitely not the normal reaction to shots and he could very well have parvo, but you can't know until you take him in, so do so as soon as you possibly can.
Good luck. Come back and let us know how he's doing.

If this has been going on for a few days then you need to get him to a vet because If he does have Parvo then you could only have days left for this lil guy because the virus acts quickly. Did he seem like he was healthy when he got the shot? If not then it is likely that the parvo virus could have overtaken his system.
Make sure he is hydrated and that his sugar level is up in the meantime. If his gums are any color other then pink then administer honey, molasous, or pancake syrup directly on his gums until they become pink.
Either way you must take him to a vet.
Please take him to he vet asap! I adopted Toby from the spca and her had been given his parvo shots, a 2 weeks later he started with the same symptoms. I took him to the vet and found out he had parvo, he was already sick when then vaccinated him.Thank goodness with treatment he survived, but its really dangerous to wait, with parvo every minute counts.
