HI there.

This is a very serious situation because these products have interfered with Wahib's neurologic system. It is important that you take him to your vet immediately to ensure that this will not become permanent damage. Your vet will put your girl in IV fluids to help flush these toxins from his system.

take him to the ER vet....if this is not possible, all you can do is to provide nursing care such as Pedialyte every 4 hrs by a dropper which will help flush her system. Also, purchase a product called Nutrical at the pet store. This is a high calorie supplement that will give her the vitamins and nutrients that she will require to get past this.

Good Luck!!
