HELP!!! Chihuahua is acting strange : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

My Chihuahua went outside for about an hour when she came back in she was acting weak. When we tried to feed her and get her to drink, she refuses. She's panting and jerking all over. Her front legs are stiff.

I can't find any snake bite indications, no swelling or any reason for this behavior.

Talked with a breeder he advised us to cool her off with damp towel and force milk and water into her. He felt she had overheated herself almost to the point of heat stroke. We also gave her a 1/8 of an asprin. At the moment shes resting and her breathing has improved.

Any possibility she could have gotten into some poison?

If you love your dog - get it to a Vet - Quit asking advice from people who probably don't know.

Good Luck
