So, my biggest concern is that your little baby may have had a seizure.......make sure you feed her soon and that she eats well. As long as she does not have another one or any vomiting, lethargy or loss of appetite you can likley wait until Monday to have her seen.....but if another episode occurs go ahead and take her to the ER.....your vet should perform a very thorough exam including a neurological exam and do a full panel of bloodwork to check her organ function and glucose levels. Please let me know any questions that you may have........

She is not eating. I tried to give her both her wet dog food and her favorite dog treats. Now all she is doing is sleeping. I tried to wake her up and all she does is lay her head on me and sleeps.
Dog Specialist: Dr B, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Hi, got your message....if she is not eating and only sleeping then you need to go ahead and take her to the ER and have her checked out. She is much too young and too small to risk her health......can I answer any other questions before you take her to the ER?

At the ER they need to check a CBC, chem panel and glucose level.....
