try mixing up some very strong INSTANT TEA  and using a seringe to give it . if she got into some kind of poison the tea will nutrilize the poison  it does work I saved one of my kitties that way , PS he lived to be 20 years old just lost him last year.

I agree with Suzanne – unless Lois’s vet suggests it, recommending something like this when you are NOT a veterinarian is not the wisest course.
