I have 7 month old boxer, he is normally driven by food. He

I have 7 month old boxer, he is normally driven by food. He hasn't eaten or drank any water for 4 days unless I force it with a syringe. I took him to vet and his white blood count was high so we started him on antibiotic but he still won't eat or drink. He still ambulatory but won't run and play as usual. I can't take him back to vet for 2 days and I'm spending hundreds of dollars with no answers. He is supposed to get x-rays of stomach but since he hasn't been vomiting a lot they didn't do them the first time. He eats grass occasionally and vomits vary little. He hasn't dedicated in 4 days either but doesn't appear to be bloated but losing weight.

My dog Caesar, (6 yr old Bichon), has been having trouble

Hi. My dog Caesar, (6 yr old Bichon), has been having trouble walking, and it is painful for him to move around and even lie down. He is currently on week 3 of antibiotics and steroids to treat lymes disease, but I am worried that he may have a back injury, a prostate problem (he has not been fixed), or maybe arthritis. I want to take him to the emergency vet, but he is not able to be picked up without extreme pain. He has also been taking pain medication here and there while he is being weened off of the steroid. Today he has had the pain medication along with the steroid to no noticeable improvement. I'm no sure where to go from here... please help!
