My dog Mya was diagnosed with DALE and vet put her on what I

My dog Mya was diagnosed with DALE and vet put her on what I believe is heavy dosage of doxycycline.In about 3 weeks she has experienced weakness and now she seems to be retaining fluid and wetting her bedShe is elderly,15,pitbull.I asked vet if it was an overly strong dose,she says no.I normally trust her diagnosis but I can see Mya failing more everyday and it scares me.She is 53 lbs.and the dose is 2 100mg. Capsules twice per day.Is that too much?Can it cause her to get weak or her bladder be out of control.She also has frequent diarrhea.She has been taking it for about a month and is supposed to take it another month.Her nose is still as bad as ever.Dry cracking open and sluffing off in chunks.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mya?Customer: Generally she has been in good health.She was treated for a stomach virus that had caused severe diarrhea as she started on the doxycycline.I can't recall that antibiotic.She was put on a canned food for digestive health.It has helped and she also has to take vitamin e ,fish oil,and a probiotic along with the doxycycline.She still has a very good appetite and drinks a lot.She has always been a heavy water drinker.She seems to be weak when walking or trying to climb on the couch.She sometimes falls back or just gives up.

It is your favorite patients (again.) Quick, easy question,

Hello Hello Hello Dr. Peter. It is your favorite patients (again.)Quick, easy question, please??Can Effie have a bath with her current injury (partially torn ACL?) I take her to the groomer - I cannot do it myself since I cannot dry her as well. But she has not had a bath since the end of last year and I usually take them every 6 - 8 weeks!!!She is scratching a bit and biting and I think it is from dry skin and dirt in the yard. She usually itches when it is time.THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
