Default Vomiting after vaccinations?

I just got Hannah vaccinated for Distemper, and she has been puking up her food for the last few days (she got the shot on Friday, it's the following Thursday now). I did switch up their food, reverting to the food they've been eating (which was out of stock in the store last time) -- I feed them Nutro Ultra so it's holistic, it wasn't a severe change. I don't know what is happening to her, but my vet sucks, and I don't want to go back. Is it normal for dogs to feel sick after shots for a few days? She is drinking plenty, running around, but she has puked 1-2 times every few days for the last week (a few nights ago she puked 5-6 times, emptying her stomach all over my apartment).

Any thoughts? She's in good health, never eats foreign objects, just got her check-up and checked out fine. Maybe just sensitive to the sudden food change? Stress? I just moved, too, and have been working late...I don't know what to think.

Dogs do feel tired after getting their shots, they may even get a fever and just hang around for 24 hours. I have not seen or heard that this goes on for almost a week. Did she puke stratight after her shots or a few days later? If later then it may be something else. Change in food?

I am assuming it's the change in food, but I literally went from Nutro Ultra Adult to Nutro Ultra Senior. And my other dog is FINE. He eats everything. If she were acting lethargic or something I'd be worried but she just barfs and then totally forgets about it. How long will it take for her to get used to the food? Is there anything I can do to help her? She has gone a night or two without barfing, but I have been there -- otherwise she has puked when I am not around.

I guess it's possible that the quick change upset her tummy, poor girl...I wouldn't think as you are staying with the same company that it would be that big of a problem tho..Maybe try a little yogurt mixed in her food, I know it works great with hunger pukes...Hope she gets to feeling better

I have heard of fever and being lethargic after vaccinations. Duke was even severely lame in one hip after his lyme shot. But not vomiting-with these dogs anythings possible... I guess. You could try a bland diet for a few days and slowly reintroduce the food.

I am sorry to hear that Hannah is not feeling well.
