Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Pickles condition...and I am sorry that this has come so late.
There are a number of factors that could cause this sudden lethargy...hypoglycemia, petite mal seizure or a congenital heart issue that you were not aware of. You will have no choice, even if she comes out of this, to have testing done to determine the cause for this so it can be prevented in the future.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, ***** *****
