Q. My maltipoo is shaking and salivating from the mouth excessively

A. If she is disoriented or not responding this may be seizure activity, another concern would be exposure to a toxic substance or nausea from a severe gastrointestinal issue and pain. I recommend you keep her confined, quiet and warm and seek urgent veterinary assessment. Do not offer food and water if her ability to swallow is reduced
