Poor Teddy Had Anaphylactic Shock from Vaccine

We had a very scary and stressful weekend. On Sunday morning, we took our dogs Teddy and Twinkle to get their yearly DHP+parvo vaccine. After that, we almost lost Teddy.

After getting their vaccination, we took them to the dog park. Teddy vomited in the car right after. Then when we let him out of the car, he had diarrhea. Normally he gets so excited at the dog park. He likes to run around and play with every dog. But that day, he couldn’t even walk. He just laid down on the grass, and showed no interest in playing. Twinkle, on the other hand, was absolutely normal and very playful.

Seeing Teddy acting weird, we immediately took them home. Soon after we got home, Teddy throw up again. I called the vaccine clinic and informed them the symptoms. The lady just told me that it sounds like normal vaccine reaction. But if I’m truly worried, I can take him to go see a doctor. Then Teddy threw up 6 more times after that within 30 minutes. Not only that, he started breathing rapidly, and his gum was turning pale.

We knew we had to take him to the hospital right away. Our normal vet is not open on Sunday, so we took him to an emergency animal hospital. When we got there, they didn’t even have to time to have us fill out the paperwork first. They immediately took Teddy back to start treatment right away.  Continue reading

Japanese Mushroom and Tofu Rice Bowl

Mushroom would be the substitute for chicken, tofu will be the substitute for eggs, and green beans will add color and crunch. Wish I had onion at home, and that would be even better.
