Customer Question
No energy and yelps...

No energy and yelps when you pick him up, seems to be his back legs. He won sit on his sides.was wondering if giving him a baby aspirin would be OK?

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 and age?

His name is ***** ***** about 10 years old.

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

Not he has been going to the restroom and is eating some but not as much as normal.
