My German 6 month old has been lethargic and has not eaten

Customer Question

My German 6 month old has been lethargic and has not eaten or had water all day. He just threw up and ate a little food. Do I need to be concerned?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: He was rolling in muddy water last night...Has not been himself since.

I am sorry you are concerned about your puppy. What German breed is he?

Not eating or drinking all day could be serious; he may be getting dehydrated. I would be worried about infection, or an intestinal blockage. Has he been vaccinated for parvo virus?

Check his gums by lifting his lip. Do they look pink or pale?
