Ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX sure.

This is something that can cause toxic signs in dogs. Like marijuana, we'll see incoordination, falling, low heart rate, urinary incontinence and periods of what appears to be passing out. It's pretty safe in that it's rare to cause death, but the signs are pretty alarming. Your best option is to get her seen where the vet would make her vomit and then give activated charcoal to bind any toxin left in the GI tract. They would then put her on IV fluids to help get the drug out of her system faster and usually 12-24 hours later they go home.

If you want to just ride out the signs at home, you can also do this. In this case, you don't need to do anything and she'll have the signs above for 8-12 hours followed by gradual return to normal.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
