wrong place for a shot

Someone gave my puppy a 9 way shot in the muscle not the skin as it should have been. Will she be alright she is swollen in that area and tender.

I am not a Vet but it should be ok.  Not unusual fir there to be a lump or some soreness.  However, do keep an eye on her and the lump.  If it gets larger, it should be checked by a Vet to make sure there is no abscess.

Who the heck gave that shot??!! I would seriously consider NOT taking your dog back to that particular vet! They don't know what they are doing, and if a student,should have had a fully qualified vet with them at consultation.
