My dachshund was fine one day and then became lethargic,

Customer Question

My dachshund was fine one day and then became lethargic, shaky and hard for her to walk. We took her to the vet and he did xrays of her spine which came out fine. he put her on meds (pain reliever and anti-inflamitory). She did fine while on the meds, but has reverted back to sleeping all day and is finding it hard to walk and is shaking again now that she's off the meds. going into the vet again tomorrow. Thoughts?

This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Can you tell me the name of the medications she was taking? How long was she off of them before she started showing symptoms again?
