Hi, Mike.Is she holding up any of her limbs? Can you describe what it is you're seeing?How long ago was the antibiotic started? Any improvements?Did they take any x-rays or do blood work?
They probably gave her antibiotics because they noted that she had a fever. Not because blood work was done.Did they discuss any potential sensitivity in her back? Small breed dogs are prone to spinal concerns that cause them to not want to jump up or take stairs. My concern would be that this might be what is going on.Do you have a copy of the receipt that was given to you yesterday that stated what was done?
