Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats. I'm sorry to hear that Malisha isn't feeling well tonight - I'll do my best to help.

If I understand this correctly - she's not getting up at all? Have you seen her get up and move around since you've been home?

If she seems so ill that she can't get up and walk around, then I would suggest having her examined by a vet ASAP. Anything that could cause a dog to be so weak as to be unable to stand definitely merits emergency investigation.

Unfortunately, aside from that, what you're describing is really vague, meaning that it can be just about anything. She could have a stomach ache, a cold, or had a toxin ingestion or trauma. Philodendrons usually cause oral irritation that can lead to drooling and GI upset. Are you seeing her doing anything else at all that might help me have an idea what's going on? I'll be here to chat if you have more observations.

~Dr. Sara
