He did eat his food but only walked enough to pee and then wanted to go back home. after the little walk he seemed not to be limping but really didn't want to walk. Is this normal?

I have a 10 pound 14 year old male silky terrier with

I have a 10 pound 14 year old male silky terrier with Cushing's disease. He takes Trilostane every day. He has had the disease for at least 2-3 years. He has no serious problem since he has had Cushing's.For the last three days he has been vomiting, diarrhea and is very lethargic. He has been to the doctor yesterday and given durapen inj, metoclopramide inj, amoxidrops,metacam inj, metoclopramide. The vomiting has stopped but the diarrhea is much worse. I took him back to the doctor this morning and the doctor gave him metronidazole and probiocin gel.He is NO better this evening. Very lethargic and will eat nothing. I am pushing water in a syringe. He appears to strain when he has a bowel movement which is nothing more than very dark liquid at this time.Do you feel I should get him to an emergency hospital? I feel he should be better by now

We have a mix Lad and Golden age 10. She has multiple fatty cells. About 20 or 30 pds. we have had 3 different Vets advise. She is becoming slow, can't walk much and use to get on bed. We were told 3 yrs ago not to do anything because of complications. She is set for Sept., for surgery. I have seen her change, will this help and what is the recovery process? Or should we not do the surgery? Very worried. I can't stand to see the difference in her. Please help
