Angel my youngest (soon to be 1) chihuahua is having some issues i think.

I tried to call the vet but they're really busy and I don't know if it's really nessessary or what.

Yesterday I piked up some poo and I'm 99% sure it's angel. It was small but also GREEN. Like really green. I know she didn't ate grass it's snowing here.
This morning I wake up and in between my pillows where she was lying their was this BIG wet spot. Atfirst i though she liked puked or something. During the day when I piked her up she kept having drool falling off her mouth. It's been going on all day. And it worst when she sleeps I SWEAR my upper leg is wet (where she was sleeping on me)

She didn't ate but I gave her her "enervite" (http://us.st11.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/activecanine_1928_81573123) as a suplement of vitamines.
She drinks alot of water.

Is it normal or dangerous? She caught so maybe she has a soar throat :S ?

(sorry for the typing problems)

Angel poop is normal and she's eating now. But still her drooling is bad. She never druled before well like once while she was having little doggy dreams but for nothing never.

they should be, if not there should be a number for an e-vet on the answering machine
drooling is often a sighn of an alergic reaction to something
you said its snowing?
do you use antifreeze or anythign like that?

drooling and green poop are sometimes sighs of antifreeze poisening is why i ask and its the right season.
but they can also be sighns of other things like a blockage, alergic reaction, stomach upset ect. id have the vet get a look at her asap

Update:
I'm back from the vet. We did some X-ray and a physical check-up he didn't see anything. Since the cost are up barely double because it's during the holiday season they agreed on keeping an eye on her over the night and do some blood test. If their's something they're going to call us for the approval to plug her on a machine and to run something I don't know what trough her vains to help her reject the poisonous thing she might of eaten.

She looked better then this morning but still it's better that they're watching her now.
I really need some petinsurance but I just lost my job!

Aw poor baby. Wishing for her to be back to herself in no time. I am sorry you lost your job. That's the pits. My hubby works at Marc's but we also had a part time job as premises mgr. of the place we live. We just lost that one and it's impacting us unfavorably. :-(
