Jack Russell acting strange (had over 5 years) after getting rabies shot yesterday

by John

Our jack russell has been extremely friendly all her life and loves to play and be picked up, etc. After getting her shot yesterday morning she seemed fine until this morning. She has been very passive, scared, and does not want to be picked up. A total behavior change. What is wrong with her?

Rabies shot
by: John

Unfortunately it is not uncommon for animals to have side effects after getting a rabies shot. I would call your vet immediately just to let him/her know (regardless if she has gotten better by now) Hopefully your Jack is back to normal but I would keep on eye on her as some people have reported side effects that appear a few weeks after their animals getting the shot. I would also keep a detailed record of what you are seeing just in case.
