5 month old Havanese sleeping more, more lethargic today,

Customer Question

5 month old Havanese sleeping more, more lethargic today, won't drink late yesterday, refuses water this am. Bowels different yesterday, softer, dark, then lighter, pencil thin. Just gave her applesauce, she took that. Just not her active self.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: 5 month dog Havanese.
JA: OK. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Havanese. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Havanese?
Customer: She picks up anything to chew or eat. I am always taking things out of her mouth.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could she have eaten anything she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
