They rushed her to the Faithful Friends Animal Society, where it was confirmed that she had been heavily sedated and she was not being responsive to any external stimuli. The staff members immediately started her on fluids and she was soon transferred to emergency care. She then underwent a drug test, the results of which showed positive for cocaine and THC.

She was kept under critical care the entire night and the staff was worried she wouldn’t make it through. But Peanut was a fighter! She fought the tremors and the weakness brought on by the drugs, and she started showing signs of improvement. The next morning, she slowly began to eat, walk and drink again.
