Depo-medrol injections and bad reaction

My 11 year old lab mix received a depo-medrol injection and seems to have had a very adverse reaction. She is confused, lethargic, will not eat or drink and has become unsteady on her feet. We returned to vet and she was given fluids, B12, regalin. After researching information about this medication I am concerned about long term side effects. If anyone has any info or thoughts I would appreciate hearing them. I miss her "labbiness".

What was she given the Depo for? Maybe there's a way to treat the original condition instead of just the symptoms.

Seek out the services of a homeopath or holistic vet. We deal (effectively) with this all the time.
