Customer Question
My dog is lethargic...

My dog is lethargic and not going to the bathroom. Her stomach is hard. I have bad knees and can go out but it’s difficult.

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 Lethargic. How old is Lethargic?

Her name is ‘Buttercup’. She is lethargic with a hard stomach.

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

Not going to the bathroom.
