Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to hel.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
If you look at his gums, are they pink in color, or do they look pale?
Is he eating, and drinking at all?
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
If I could, I would be checking him for low blood sugar, which happens in small breed dogs. I would also check for back pain or internal pain.
When you say he is out of it, is he conscious? Does he respond to you?
