I am sorry you are concerned about April being lethargic. I just came online and saw your question; I am sorry you did not get help from a Just Answer expert before now.

Is she showing lethargy by being less active, more tired? Or does she seem weak?

There are many causes of lethargy in dogs: fever, anemia, internal disease, infection. If you lift her lip to look at her gums, are they a normal bright pink or do they seem pale?

I have not heard back from you; how is April doing?
