My dog was running around earlier and hit his head, since then he's been very lethargic and dopey, should I be concerned?
Type of Animal: Dog- Goldendoodle
Age: almost 5
tried getting him to play, he just laid at my feet
Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!Are the pupils the same size and responsive to light?Any vomiting?Change in breathing?-
his eyes are a very dark brown, it is nearly impossible to see where his pupils end... he has not vomitted, and he's jut lethargic, everything is slow... his movements, his breathing, no real appetite ( won't take his favorite treats)
Most likely he is tired and has a headache.Typically dogs with true head trauma from an injury are much worse in their description, unresponsive, comatose, breathing changes, and overall illness. _____________________________________________________________________Please click "ACCEPT" if the information I have provided has been of help so I receive credit for my work.
