My Italian greyhound/chihuahua mix puppy is vomiting and sleepy. She seems to have a fever. She normally is a high energy pup at 6 months old. Today I gave her Nexgard and now I'm wondering if she is experiencing side effects. She is drinking water. What should I do before to the vet on Monday?

About 1.5 months ago, I noticed a big firm lump between my

About 1.5 months ago, I noticed a big firm lump between my dog's front toes, it's slightly red but not ulcerate or bleeding, took her to vet who prescribed a week of antibiotics as she suspect it might be foreign object that caused an infection, and said if it doesn't get better then she will need to cut it open. So after a week of antibiotic it is still the same, but then I started applying turmeric and coconut oil paste based on a suggestion from a holistic vet, it started to shrink in size, almost invisible to the naked eyes now but not completely gone as I can still feel a small sesame seed size lump, but it didn't get any bigger so I chose to wait and see. And about two days ago I notice two more lumps appearing on the same webbing area between the same toes, it's smaller than the one before but feels quite similar, semi-firm lump. Her nails and paw all looks fine, no limping, no swelling or loss of nails etc, and she doesn't seem to be too bothered by it, hardly see her lick. so I'm not sure if this could be a bacteria-based Interdigital furuncles or some sort of tumor, but can cancerous tumor appear as multiple lumps in same location?Please see link for pic as its too big to attach on here, the first picture is the old lump 1.5 months ago, second picture shows how it's almost gone now, together with the two new lumps next to her toe on the webbing.http://a68.tinypic.com/2unuaz9.jpghttp://a66.tinypic.com/2e21h4w.jpg
