Is there a chance she ingested an "upper" in the form of a prescription or recreational drug, a rodenticide containing bromethalin, a snail bait containing metaldehyde, or other chemical? Does she have a history of seizure disorder? Which breed and how old is she, please?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There is definitely no chance of ingesting uppers or any chemicals. She has had a seizure in the past but it was caused by the perimeter collar her old owners had for her. She is a miniature pinscher and I'm guessing about a year old
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Thank you. Her history of seizure can't be discounted out of hand. She may currently be in status epilepticus - the state in which her brain remains agitated until she's heavily sedated or anesthetized. Regardless of the cause of her agitation, she needs to be sedated at this time lest she exhausts herself and/or suffers heat prostration. Please have her attended to by an on-call vet at your earliest convenience.

Please continue our conversation if you wish.
