What color are her gums?
Have you applied any flea prevention today?
Can you count her heart beat and tell me how many time it beats in 10 seconds?
Any chance she got into anything toxic?
what breed is she?
Ok the heart rate itself is at an acceptable beat per minute.
What was she seen at the vets for?
Is she spayed?
Any information you can give would help
If her pups were just taken today then it is very possible that she is having a drop in blood calcium levels this happens more in small dogs but does happen in all breeds and can be fatal very quickly.
Here is more on this
If this is the problem and she is not seen right away she may not make it through the night. If you have tums or calcium supplements please give her 2-3 and get her to the vet immediately.
This could also be seizures from infection in the body.
This is an emergency and she needs to be seen right away either of the above mentioned problems can not wait until tomorrow.

Oh no it is a must you have to go I can not tell you how many owners loose their dogs on the way to the hospital. I know it is far but she will need more calcium then you can give and she will likely vomit up anything you try to feed her.Thye will have to give calcium by injection
There really is only a short time with this especially once the seizures start , her body temp is also likely very high do not get her wet put her in the car with a damp towel across her back and stomach. Give calcium supplements or tums on the way and give 3-5 of them you may have to chew them up and then put in her mouth.
