We have a miniature pinscher
, male, around 9 or 10 years old. Last Friday, he became very lethargic, had great difficulty walking
, and was very wobbly. We also noticed that he had broken a front tooth. He wouldn't eat anything, but would drink water, and became very skinny. On Saturday we started giving him an 1/8 tsp of Vitamin C, 1/8 tsp of Glucosomine, and 1 baby aspirin and started force feeding
him soft wet dog food and chicken
broth. We have kept up this routine since then, and is now eating 4 tsp of dog food and 4 syringes of chicken broth twice daily. He is still drinking water voluntarily. He is urinating
normally and has soft almost black stools. What could be the problem and can we do more? Thank you, Beth
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Beth. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Beth?
Customer: No, I think that is everything. Thanks
