A. You need to take her to the emergencies right away. Although it's not likely to bet the cold weather - do put a warm blanket and try to warm her in the meantime. This could be an acute brain condition or a serious illness causing organ failure.

Take he right away to the vet if you want her to have a chance to survive this.
