Customer Question
My 12 year old...

My 12 year old golden just froze this morning after drinking water, could not move and just layed over on his side and won't move. He is not vomiting or in any visual distress. He won't move.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No he is awake and alert and will track, he is just lethargic and won't get up.
