Pet Medication Side Effects & Drug Detox

Today July 13th at 6:30pm I brought my chihuahua to the vet for a stomach problem, they quoted me $500 to run some test. I told them I would go home to discuss with my wife and come back in the morning. They then pushed for a steriod shot which I accepted thinking it was the right thing to do. 30 minutes later, just as I walk in the house, my dog dies in my hands. We are in pieces right now! What can I do?

I took my 14 year old cat to the vet because she was limping. The Dr. determined it was her elbow, and gave her a shot of cortisone. My cat stopped eating, and 48 hours later I had to put her down. The cortisone may have brought to light an underlying problem, renal failure. I know she would have shown symptoms eventually, it all just happened so fast.
