Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 25 days ago.

Meth consumption for dogs can be lethal. If this is suspected, she needs to see a vet. Have you considered applying for a line of credit, such as from CareCredit.com? This can be used tonight, if approved.

The next best option would be to look into financial support for the vet bill. Here are some resources.

You are likely going to need to wait until morning to reach someone. In the meanwhile, keep her in a calm, dark place without loud noises or heavy light saturation. If she begins to have tremors or seizures, keep her body cooled down by misting her belly and feet with tepid water (never cold).

That's all I can do for her

Without medical help, yes. There is no home treatment for possible meth ingestion.

Checking in. How is your companion doing? I didn't hear back from you yesterday. I hope all is well.
