May have been something she ate. Iíve had dogs and cats exhibit symptoms like that after munching on something that grows in this thicket behind my motherís garden.
Also, animals can have extremely bad reactions to human medicine. Thereís a whole list. Girlfriendís dog ate a bottle of some kind of mood stabilizer we just had sitting around (prescribed and never used), and the cat ate a little *scrape* of one pill. Dog stumbled around for the day; cat had to be taken to the hospital and pumped fullnof fluids and I had to pay a bunch of money to ASPCA to get their advice, and a number that would guarantee me priority (it didnt work, and kitty almost died while I was in waiting room). But... they saved him. Dog was fine, but thoroughly roasted for a good day.
I almost pulled the little veterinary nurse-secretary girl out from behind the desk by her collar. I swear I almost went to jail that day.
But praise Cthulhu, all was well.
