The reason some got so concerned when they heard the dogs were chained, and sick, is that we do get people on here asking for advice on dogs when the dogs are borderline neglected or abused, some flat out neglected. Two that leap to mind, one dog had a hole in it's mouth and the owner was refusing to take it to the vet, another was owned by the posters boyfriend's family and the dog was extremely sick, dying, yet the owner refused to take it to the vet. The list goes on and I can pull threads if you have a morbid sense of curiosity. A lot of us on here, myself included, have seen dogs chained in backyards that are rarely, if ever, let off the chain. They are treated like little more then living lawn ornaments, so the subject can be a touchy one with us.
I'm glad that's not the case with your mom's dogs and that y'all are going to get them vet care. I don't have any guesses, to offer since I have not heard of anything with that set of symptoms. Hopefully the vet will have some answers.
