Customer Question
She is just five...

She is just five months old and usually very active but has been very lethargic and her eyes are red and producing a yellowish-green discharge.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Dixie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Dixie?

She did just change foods yesterday to a really high-quality food...not sure if that could be related.
