Customer Question
He is an english...

He is an english mastiff puppy, 5 months old. He is acting restless and whining whenever he is laying on his stomach. He also seems to be breathing heavily. This has been going on for two days. also we dont remember when he last had a bm.

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 Mastiff. What is the Mastiff's name?

Bear

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

Not that I know of

Is he eating and drinking normally still?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?
