My dog is very tired but he can’t seem to get comfortable…

Customer Question
My dog is very...

My dog is very tired but he can’t seem to get comfortable enough to lie down and go to sleep. He also does not want to eat his breakfast, and he seems lethargic and is moving more slowly than normal.

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?

His name is ***** ***** he just turned 2

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about George?

I don’t know, he doesn’t have any conditions, he’s current on all medications and shots and gets regular checkups

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Where do you live- is it still warm there?

No vomiting or diarrhea?

Recent exrecise?

We are in California, the weather has been in the mid 60s-70s for a few weeks. He has not vomited or had diarrhea and he goes for regular walks with us everyday
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Okay

I am wondering about something like Lyme disease

Other possibility is an insect bite or fever

I suggest we try him with some anti-inflammatories today and see how he responds

Would you like to try that first before making decision to take him in?
