Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog is so lethargic tonight.

When did he sneak away from your house? How long was he gone? Has he ever dripped urine from his penis before tonight? Could he have gotten into something, like marijuana, human pain medications, human mental health medications for anxiety, depression, etc? Has he ever had any other health problems before tonight? Any chance he was injured in some way, hit-by-car, fighting, kicked by a horse or cow, etc? Any labored breathing?

What color are his gums? They should be a medium pink. Can you take his temperature?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so I can help you and your dog tonight.
