Customer Question
He is very lethargic...

He is very lethargic and not wanting food or water. He has had an upset tummy. Could it be that I changed the dry food flavour. The other two dogs are fine

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 and age?

His name is ***** ***** he is 10 years old

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

Other than that he has been healthy. He has also been wetting his feet in his water bowl, banjo is a ***** *****

Hello. This is Dr. Hill. I need to ask a few questions in order to help with Banjo. How long has he not been eating or drinking? When did you change the food? Is he having any vomiting or diarrhea? Does he get any people food, like meats, cheeses or marrow bones?
