Customer Question

13#, ShitSue Chiwaia mix, 4.5 to 5 years old. Rescue.
He has been very lethargic for a couple of days. He is eating and eliminating (no change in appearance) regularly. BUT, he spends time in his bed. Previously, when I am in kitchen, he is right there waiting for something to drop and or be given a morsel. Tonight he wasn't even in the kitchen.

Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Is he acting mostly normal?

How long have you had him?
