Make sure she did not get into anything, like antifreeze, bleach, or other cleaning materials, as eating something that is toxic to her can bring about lethargy and excessive drooling. Telenol, as little as teo regular tablets, can kill a small dog as they lack the proper liver enzymes to break down acetaminophen. Signs of toxicity include drooling, lethargy and stomach pain. If you think your dog has eaten something toxic, call your vet immediately and take her to the local clinic.

In the meantime, keep your dog hydrated by putting two tablespoons of water in her mouth every half an hour, otherwise the dehydration will make her much worse. Small dogs can die within days of getting sick if not taken care of well as the dehydration alone will kill them.
