My bedlington terrier is acting tired, even lethargic,

Customer Question
HI. My bedlington terrier...

HI. My bedlington terrier is acting tired, even lethargic, eating very little or not at all, and drinking a ton of water ... always drinking. It's been going on for 2 days now, since yesterday morning.

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?

Stella.

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

No -- 6 years old, otherwise healthy. We have 3 other dogs, who are all fine.

Stella needs to go to your vet and have a good exam, along with CBC,chem panel and 4DX test....my largest concern is hepatic copper toxicity....in which case you will need a liver biopsy if it looks like liver causing these symptoms...
