Customer Question
He didnt wake up...

He didnt wake up as usual, i moved thos week so figured the stress of the move had worn him out. Woke him up at 9:30, and saw he had peed on himself. He didnt want to walk do carried him out and he was able to walk, but very gingerly. Not eating and drinking very little.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. 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?

12 yesr old poidle mix

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

He is usually energetic, happy and mellow.

I would worry about a few things, either something metabolic like a kidney infection, a stroke like event from high blood pressure, or a seizure like episode. I would recommend taking him in to the vet as soon as you can for bloodwork and a blood pressure. In the meantime, you can try to give him some boiled chicken and white rice to spark his appetite and give him Pedialyte to keep him well hydrated while he's not really wanted to eat much.
