Customer Question

My mini long haired dachshund is lethargic and if i put her on the floor she starts shaking. she keeps her tail between her legs.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the dachshund. What is the dachshund's name and age?

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Bebe, please?

Regretfully, her symptoms of lethargy and shaking when on the ground are nonspecific and not pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular problem. I might consider that she's reacting to the flea treatment, however. Which was used on her, please?
