She could have Polio..she needs Thiamine...B1 plain B complex has a small amount in it and you can use it to hold her until you can get straight thiamine or FORTIFIED B complex which has enough in it to help her...
here is a quote to show how much she needs of plain B complex
Injectable multiple B vitamins containing only 25mg/ml of thiamine require four times the 100mg/ml dosage (18-1/2 cc) per 100 pounds
Keep up the pen since polio and listeriosis have simular symptom..here is a great link to read up on both so you can care for your doe...
