    Pups sometimes can be a little 'off' after their vaccination.

    So long as he isn't vomiting and is breathing normally, I would let him sleep it off.

    If he begins showing any worrying symptoms, contact your Vet.

    The vets can be quite stressful in general, plus lots of new sights, smells, sounds, meeting new people and seeing dogs etc, it can be quite a tiring experience for a young puppy. Plus suddenly making the immune system kick into quick action due to the vaccs I'm not surprised pup is tired!
    Give him a day to recover, make sure he's drinking but if you're worried give the vets a ring and see what they say.

    The same advice you've slready been given.

    Having had two Shar-Pei puppies I can tell you that they tend to sleep more than a lot of other breeds. Pei are couch potatoes and enjoy their creature comforts. Don't be surprised as well if your pup hates the rain as it's quite a common trait amongst the breed.

    Good luck and enjoy!

    When did he have the injections? Its not unusual for some pups to seem a little off colour for the 24 hours or so after having them, however if it has been longer then this, the symptoms seem persistent or especially if getting worse, it may be worth contacting your vet. for advice.
