If you just had her out to play, she could just be tired and tired and thirsty.
If she keep it up though, you will want to take her to the vet. Drinking a water bottle a day could mean diabetes.

The rolling around and shaking her head are suspicious to me. I would take her to the vet, especially if she keeps doing it or starts to develop a head tilt. Those can be symptoms of things like ear infections. If she has something like that, she will need medications to treat it.

Did she actually roll, or just flop over on her side? It sounded to me like you were describing a "dead bunny flop" and more of a head binky. But if she is actually rolling around, then take her to the vet!

Oh okay, I couldn't really tell what you meant when you said she was rolling around. I didn't realize that you meant she just did a flop. Actually rolling around and loss of balance are signs of inner ear infections or other problems. Shaking their heads a lot can be a sign of that as well, so I just figured I'd mention it.

How is she today? Is she drinking a normal amount again?
