Customer Question
Second opinion] Hi, just...

Second opinion] Hi, just got a papillon puppy who is 5 months and I notice he keeps stretching all different positions? He also won't sleep with us get off the bed and lays on the floor. He changes his spot through out the night. Not really sure what is going on I have had a lot of dogs. He has been to the vet he looks well just some skin allergies

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 the dog. What is the dog's name?

He is not having lethargy he has tons of energy crazy energy! I was just wondering if stretching a lot in different positions means there is something wrong or if it is normal for a puppy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He just had tape worm but they are all gone the vet gave him medicine. So when does the vet contact me?
