Customer Question
My dog is really...

My dog is really anxious, keeps kind of wimpering and won’t go to sleep. He was acting totally normal until about an hour ago when we came to bed.

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 your dog. What is the dog's name and age?

Mickey. 11 and a half.

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

Not that I can think of

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Mickey, please?

Regretfully, his behavior while important isn't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Have new signs arisen that might clarify why Mickey behaved in that manner?
