I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish. Please let me know if you still need help.

It sounds as if Sheena had been intoxicated with a prescription or recreational drug or perhaps suffered a complex partial seizure (also called psychomotor seizure). A seizure should have abated by now and Sheena would have normalized although now sleepy. An intoxication, however, could cause lasting symptoms predicated upon what she was exposed to and how much of it she was exposed to.

I took her to the vet yesterday n she has a heart mumer n abddomal pains. Her white blood count was high n she had a fevet of 102. He gave her some antibotics n a tylonal shot for the fever. Told me not to give her fried foods
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 5 months ago.

Thank you for the update. Playing devil's advocate, I must tell you that 102F is within the normal range of 100.5-102.5F. How is Sheena doing today, please?

Hi,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Sheena. How is everything going?
