All labs were clear (temp, blood count, stool, urine). After 2 days we brought her back to the vet that she was very lethargic and out of it. They reduced the benedryl and continued just predisone 5 mg 2x a day for 3 days and then 5mg 1x a day for 2 days and then 1 pill every other day. After 2 more additional days she showed some return of activity and personality. However, over the weekend she had diarrhea with mucus in it and again was very lethargic. Wouldn't want to walk, wasn't responding to her name, wasn't getting up off the floor. We tapered the prednisone to 2.5 mg over the weekend per the vets recommendation and are giving her a probiotic. Her diarrhea is better now but her personality is altered and she has no energy or interest in doing anything. She is eating and drinking fairly regularly (just chicken and rice).
My gut tells me something else is going on. But is it possible she is severely depressed? Anyone experience anything like this after a trauma?
After trucker's anaphylactic incident he was lethargic for about a week or two. I took him a lot of sleep to get back to himself.
