Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has this been going on?

2- Any pre existing medical conditions?

3- Did he get into anything?

4- Any other symptoms?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just in the last couple of hours. No pie existing conditions. We don't know if he's got into anything. There is poison in the house, but far behind heavy furniture where he can't reach it.
He's just super lethargic. Not running, barking, like normal. His nose is still cold and moist.

2- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?

3- Can you take her rectal temperature?
