Customer Question
My dog is 10...

My dog is 10 years old and became lethargic today. She barely moves and it looks like her heart is going to jump out of her body.

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?

Gidget

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

She won't eat, did vomit very heavy mucous and has moved around only a few times today. She did eat 2 rawhide bones a day ago. Don't know if this has anything to do with it.
