Standard poodle has addisons, currently on Fludrocortisone

Customer Question

Standard poodle has addisons, currently on Fludrocortisone .04 mg 2x day. Right now he's awake but it's very hard to get him to respond. Lying down and seems dazed. He will get up and come to me if I speak loudly and persistently but for the most part will stand, take a few steps and just stop there . . . Not his usual energy level at all. Since it's 2am I'm trying to figure out whether I should call the vet...
