I think my 6.5 yr old lab retriever cross had an allergic

I think my 6.5 yr old lab retriever cross had an allergic reaction to either rabies shot 2 days ago (received the shot 1 week ago). He also started nsaids and glucosimine supplement one week ago. His eye swelled largely 2 days ago but went away, last 3 days he won't really eat and has constipation then diarrhea daily, with bright red blood streaks present. He's eating grass and vomiting bile daily. Acting strange and restless. Vet said he was restless before bc he has arthritis and put him on the nsaids and glucosimine. I've taken him off these for 24 hours now and just got him to eat some rice. He just turned in 3 circles and started to defecate in front of me on carpet in house...he never has accidents but didn't even try to go outside. Do you think the meds caused problem and I should wait to see if it improves?

My 9 year old female Dachshund has recently stopped climbing

My 9 year old female Dachshund has recently stopped climbing stairs (4 days ago). She will go down stairs but not up. If she attempts going up she goes slowly, climbing sideways, leading with her right side. She will do two this way then stop. The most number of steps she needs to climb is three. She doesn't show any signs of pain when attempting to go up stairs, just acts like it's too much effort. Her nails were quite long and curling under so I took her in to get them trimmed today along with a complete grooming. She seems a little happier but is still balking at the stairs. She takes walks and plays the same as before. She did appear to have a fever 2 nights ago but awoke in the morning with a cold wet nose. I have gently palpated her back, legs and paws without reaction. The groomer told me she was good without any negative reactions to her grooming. Her appetite remains good, she is alert and appears strong except when she is faced with climbing the stairs. Is this an early sign of back problems? What can I do to counter this?

My dog received some shots yesterday and he was fine. But

My dog received some shots yesterday and he was fine. But this morning he was limping a little and looks like he was sore. 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?
