Q. Our 8 yr.old Puggle has suddenly become lethargic after eating. She walks with head and tail down and tries to hide under things. No other symptoms.

Answered By

A. I am sorry to hear your puggle is under the weather. I do feel that this conversation is a little more in depth and I would be able to assist you more if you requested a one-on-one consultation. Lethargy is a very generalized symtpom and with no other symptoms to note, it can be hard to pinpoint any particular body system that may be affected here. I would like to go through with you very specific questions and answers to give you the very best advice moving forward for the care of your pet.
