Customer Question
She is having trouble...

She is having trouble sleeping and it seems to hurt to lie down

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?

Marley and she is about 7 1/2

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

We just had a vet check up 2 days ago and she got her shots - she seems okay most of the time but doesn't seem to want to lie down
