Our Golden Buddy is lethargic, stands and doesn't blink,

Customer Question
Our Golden Buddy is...

Our Golden Buddy is lethargic, stands and doesn't blink, disoriented and not socializing at all. He is eating and drinking water. It has been over 24 hours of this. We took him to the vet last night and said he seemed fine and recommended an xray and labs after 24hour observation. My husband just told me that he completely ripped a bag of cement 2 days ago. Should we take him tot he emergency clinic or wait until the morning to take him to his vet. He is a 7 month old Golden Retriever.

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 Golden. What is the Golden's name?

Buddy

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

He just wants to sleeps and breaths heavily. I am afraid he might be poisoned by the cement. No throwing up or diahrrea.
