She probably went shocky do to the procedure and stress and since this is
the second time in it is harder on them.. I would also watch the pain meds
if they are using Narcotics since this could make it alll the worse. I have
had reactions to these that have cost animals their lives so be sure they
are non narcotic pain meds. I would be using cortisone on her at least
short term just to transition her system. Keep her Very warm and quiet.

Best of luck to you both.
