Customer Question

my Yorkie is sick. We left her alone yesterday and when we arrived home, she had urinated on the couch and was very lethargic. However she did eat and drink. Today, she is lethargic, but has eaten and gone outside for short walk. She has urinated today, but still acts lethargic. Seems like her stomach is distended also. What do do? Thanks!
