My brothers dog is quite old but usually hungry. She won't

Customer Question

my brothers dog is quite old but usually hungry. She won't eat her meal & seems to be very wobbly. She is totally covered with Advantix so I tend to think it is not tick bite. She seems to be dehydrated, though when we finally got her on her feet she has had 2 massive drinks, She is not responding normally to the lead which she usually gets excited about. I'm worried because she is so lethargic.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. It could be an infection. The Veterinarian will know what to do. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: My brother has taken her to the vet when she had a type of fit where her eyes rolled & flickered a month or so ago. I fear she may be dying. She is a very large dog in her 15th year
