Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about Harley's condition....this may be related to a low blood sugar which will respond almost right away to some Karo Syrup or concentrated sugar water and it will not hurt to give this to see if she responds.If Harley is eating but still lethargic, then this may be bruising from playing too hard or an unstable disc in her back that is causing her discomfort. This is treated with aspirin at 5 mg per pound every 12 hrs as long as she is eating. If she does not respond to this, then you will have to have your vet examine sweet Harley to be sure we have not missed something.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
