    I'm not really sure... I would take her to the vet in this situation. Goodluck!

    thank you.I have her in the house due to the bitter cold.she seems more alert.she is eating and drinking more than I have seen her do in the last couple of months.She is a small mixed breed.and she had a hard molt and lost a lot of weight.It maybe the cold is harder on her due to her weight loss.
