I have been giving her all medicines, and she has been eating and drinking well, but today, so, 4 days after she came home from hospital, she is extremely lethargic and stool is a little loose.. could she relapse? does this seem normal for

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 puppy. What is the dog's name?

Bella

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

No.. she's a bull mastiff... her appetite is huge..we've been feeding 5 small meals a day on bland wet food from vet, and started adding her puppy chow in as per vet instructions on day 3 home from hospital. So, her diet yesterday and today was wet bland food with a little regular puppy chow
