Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Have you noticed any coughing, sneezing, vomiting or diarrhea with him lately? It could be that he is coming down with something and your vet will likely want to do some blood work and x-rays tomorrow when you take him in. In the meanwhile, I would feed him some boiled chicken and white rice with a little bit of low sodium chicken broth. This is a bland diet, that's easy to digest, but it also tastes good and it usually perks them up. Plus the extra fluid helps with hydration. You can also give him some Pedialyte throughout the day today to keep his electrolytes up as well.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
plus n o coughing sneezing nothing just low energy usually when my wife leaves he goes crazy now nothing he just goes over to couch and lays down
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Pedialyte is kind of like Gatorade for babies. It is just a water that has some electrolytes and vitamins in it that can be helpful when a dog isn't feeling well.
