Customer Question

I changed my dogs food abruptly and she threw up for that day only. O stopped giving her water as well . The next day yesterday she seemed ok and she was eating again. This is the 3rd day and she seems hyper running around crazy like. I let her outside to go potty and now she's seeming normal.
I want someone to look at her she won't stay still

Jeannie, I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. May I have an update on your Sheltie, please? She appears to be vacillating between normalcy and hyperactivity which can occur after the ingestion of a prescription or recreational drug, chemical, rodenticide (bromethalin), or snail bait (metaldehyde). A complex partial seizure (psychomotor seizure) is another consideration if her mental status were altered during a hyper event.

Hi Jeannie,

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