Well, we spent an hour at the vets. They gave her fluids because she was dehydrated and some medication to settle her stomach. We also have taken home fluid replacement and have to administer them ourselves for the next three days.
And, another stomach medication pill that has to be given daily for the next 5 days.
She seems a little better, and has drank quite a bit of water this morning. We're supposed to try and give her small amounts of cooked white rice and ground chicken, but not her dried kibble until we see some improvement.
I'm feeling a little more encouraged, but trying not to get overly optimistic because she had shown some improvement on Monday and then went downhill from there.
As I expected, we didn't get any real response as to whether or not the current problems was caused by the rabies vaccine. She simply said that older dogs can react differently. At my urging they will contact the vaccine manufacturer to report her symptoms etcetera and request compensation for treatment costs. The vet says there's a 50/50 chance they'll come through. Kind of wish this would have happened without me having to request it, but this vet doesn't seem overly proactive.
Thanks for all your kind thoughts...they mean a lot to us!
