Customer Question
He is 1 yr...

He is 1 yr old.... always active and playing. Today he is lethargic and shaking bit... he is eating and going out to potty. But not himself. Feels very warm

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?

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Baylee, please?

Regretfully, lethargy, shaking, and possible fever while important signs aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Have any new signs arisen that might clarify Baylee's behavior?
