I'm happy to hear that your vet is so willing to work with you. Those sound like some pretty icky side effects. Bazz and I hope she'll continue to improve .
Keep us posted

Hi Amy, you have had a few scary days. I hope things are settling down.

One thing I do know is that Maggie is in very capable hands and surrounded by more en one very loving caregiver.

Cutting the dose of clavamox has made a big difference. Her numbers are back to her normal state.

The other concern I have with her is her extreme clinginess lately. She has always been independent - she is a JRT after all - but she absolutely wants to be held non-stop or follow me around. It is obsessive and polar opposite of how she has always been. She has always had severe separation anxiety as far as being left alone but she has always been content to lay on her bed or entertain herself as long as she is not by herself. I feel like she is not feeling good and she just wants some comfort. Or maybe I am over obsessing about things

These older dogs will break your heart.

How true. They will and they do, but it is well worth it.

Abby was always independent as well, with no separation anxiety, but they do change with age.

Glad Maggie is doing better.
