Customer Question
I have a 6...

I have a 6 1/2 lb chihuahua... For 2 days she has been very sleepy and anti social. She is eating and drinking as normal. Bowels look healthy... She perks up to treats. My animals are very routine. Her behavior is different than normal.

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 your dog. What is the dog's name?
