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

How long has he been like this?
Is he eating and drinking? Any vomiting or diarrhea?
If you look at his gums, are they pink in color or do they look pale?
Sorry for all the questions! Since I can't see and examine him ( and that is the main way we veterinarians tell what is wrong with a dog), the more information have the better I can help answer your questions about him.
