I'm sorry Jonah doesn't seem to be himself. Do you think he is having any changes in his breathing?

Are you able to look at his gums to see what color they are? Many dogs will have black spots on their tongue or lips that is normal pigmentation, we try to look at areas that aren't obviously black to assess color, ie pale, pink, red etc.

How long has he seemed sluggish?
