    15 week old Mini Australian Shepherd - possible poisoning
    eshulman posted:
    I have a 15 week old mini Australian Shepherd. She was perfectly fine earlier today, then a few hours ago I heard her yelping from the other room. She had only been out of my sight about 2 minutes. I rushed over and she was running in circles yelping. She had been playing with my mom's dog, so I thought perhaps the dog had injured her or frightened her, but I could detect no sign of injury. She then became shaky, incontinent of urine, and was having trouble keeping her balance. I rushed her to the emergency vet, and she is currently there on an IV because they think she ingested something toxic. I have no knowledge of anything toxic she could have eaten, and she was hardly out of my sight all day. I am concerned because what I've read about the symptoms for poisoning don't seem to accurately capture what is going on with my dog. She is currently taking metronidazole and panacur as a treatment for giardia. Can anyone help me figure out what is going on?
