Customer Question
I have a 7 month...
I have a 7 month old English Bulldog that is extending his neck and smacking his lips and occasionally moaning. His eyes are cloudy and he looks disoriented. He is lethargic and does not want to play with his toys. After he has been sleeping a while he is rigid and becomes incontinent. He is completely aware of what is going on. He is eating and pooping fine. He was recently at a dog hospital in Ithaca NY for an ortho consult and has been sick since we came home. This has been going on 7 days. I took him to the local ER, they said he looked "drunk" and the primary vet said all his vitals were good so I'm getting no help. At the first hospital he was exposed to a sick basset hound puppy that was making puddles of drool. I am worried he caught something and it is being missed. Help!!
