My dog Bear was about 3 years old, but he's an outside dog. Well he didnt have a license and the ASPCA told us that I had 7 days to get my dog a license and in order to do that, he has to get a rabies shot. I took him to get a rabies shot yesterday and this morning my brother found him dead.
Well I went outside and buried my dog, but my sister told me I should call the vet and let them know that he died. Yesterday when I took him to get the shot, she said that his temp should be around 101, but it was 104 and she took a fecal sample which she's suppose to call tomorrow and tell us the results, but I called her today and she's suppose to call me back. Is it possible that the shot killed him?
She had mentioned that I should get him checked for heartworms but we gave him heartworm medicine a few months ago. Still we were going to take him back to the vet at a later date for the test. He wasnt acting out of place. It's summer and he's huskey mixed. He's usually more active during the colder months, but this morning he was found laying under trees, which he did more often than being in his house, but he wasnt moving. We buried him already cuz I didnt know what else we could do. I've never had a dog die so suddenly before and we've always had outside dogs. I know not every dog is the same, but if the vet knew he had a temp should she had given him the shot?
