Q. My dog is suddenly lethargic and not walking right
DANA KOCH, VMD, MLAS
A. To properly answer this question more information would be helpful. There could be several reasons for your dog not to be walking correctly, such as a soft tissue injury, arthritis, a back problem or even a fractured bone. The lethargy could be caused by your dog being uncomfortable due to the limping or a concurrent problem. Offering more information and consulting with one of our pet experts could provide more insight. If you are truly concerned a visit to your veterinarian may be the best solution so a complete physical examination can be performed.
