The symptoms you're describing in your dog, such as shaking, fatigue, trembling, tremors, shivering, heavy breathing, difficulty walking, falling down, excessive salivation, and muscle weakness, are concerning and can be indicative of several serious conditions. These may include but are not limited to poisoning, infectious diseases, neurological disorders, or metabolic issues.

In the absence of a veterinarian, there are limited measures you can take at home to provide supportive care:

- Ensure your dog is in a safe, quiet, and comfortable area to prevent injury from falls or knocks. A padded area can help cushion any falls.
- Keep her hydrated. Offer small amounts of water frequently if she can drink without choking. If she's having difficulty drinking, you can use a syringe to gently squirt water into the side of her mouth. Be careful not to squirt it directly down her throat to avoid aspiration.
- If she's not vomiting, offer a bland diet such as boiled chicken and rice in small, frequent meals.
- Keep her warm, but not overheated. You can use blankets to help her maintain body temperature, but ensure she can move away from them if she gets too warm.
- Avoid any strenuous activity or stress, as this can exacerbate her symptoms.

It's crucial to monitor her closely for any changes. If she shows any signs of worsening, such as seizures, loss of consciousness, or if she stops breathing, these are emergencies, and you must seek veterinary help immediately, even if it means traveling to find a vet or calling for emergency assistance.

If she has ingested something toxic, remove any remaining material from her environment and from her mouth if safely possible. Do not induce vomiting unless specifically instructed by a professional, as this can sometimes cause more harm.

Remember, these are temporary measures and not a substitute for veterinary care. It's essential to find a way to get professional help as soon as possible, as her condition may worsen without proper medical treatment.
