Customer Question

My dog is a terrier mix, 8 yrs old. approx. 85 lbs. Lately he hasn't been eating very much of hes food but drinks lots of water. His nose seems full of mucus and dried out at the end of his snout. Getting up from floor seems to be a little hard. Moves around more slower than before. This has been going on for about 4 days.
