Customer Question
My dog has been...

My dog has been on phenobarbital for a few months now and I just had a phenobarbital blood test done and everything was within therapeutic range and the last couple of days he has been acting strange like he can't keep his eyes open and very lethargic .

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 and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is a 5 yr old bullmastiff pitbull mix

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

That he has a stage lll heart murmur that was discovered a year ago but has not progressed

Is Caine eating and drinking normally and urinating and defecating ?

Can you check his gums for me and tell me what color they are?

any coughing ?
