Hi there- I'm Dr. Kane and will do my best to help you and Lilly tonight. I apologize but the full information is not showing up on my end. Did she eat something unusual?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
she was eating grass on our walks
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
but nothing unusual
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 5 months ago.

So she is eating and drinking OK. What is she doing that concerns you tonight?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
her eyes r closed and shes sleeping a lot...
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
she is eating and drinking ok
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 5 months ago.

How long has she been doing this for? Any other symptoms? Did she go for a particularly long walk tonight?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
just started today.....I didn't take her 4 a walk today.....its been cool out
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 5 months ago.

Well, it's hard to say if this is something to be concerned about or not. If Lilly starts to develop any other symptoms, or if her energy level doesn't normalize by tomorrow- it may be a sign of illness. Do you have any specific questions for me?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
no ...I think that's it.....her nose is wet
and cold
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 5 months ago.

OK then, I hope she is feeling back to normal soon! Have a good night, and feel free to provide a rating when you have a moment.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
she did eat and drank water.....I did notice she was sneezing the last few days
Expert:  Rebekah Kane replied 5 months ago.

Well, it's definitely good that she still has her appetite. As far as the sneezing, it could be something as simple as allergies (like hay fever in people)- but watch for any abnormal discharge or persistence of sneezing. Sometimes dogs can sniff up plant awns into their noses when going into tall grasses- if it continues take her in for a visit with her veterinarian.
