I'm at...

I'm at my girlfriends house and we found her 2 month old puppy laying down lethargic, unresponsive, dry nose tongue hanging out and bloated belly. What do we do?

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 puppy's name?

Misty

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

She hasn't had her shots and was last seen eating a plastic bag with unknown contents

This is not something you can diagnose or treat at home. You need to take him/her to the emergency clinic right now.

I can not tell you what is wrong but I do know she needs to go now if there is going to be any hope of saving her.

Do you have a list of vets nearby to take her?

Where do you live? I can look up the emergency vets online

If you know of a vet by your house, call them and the outgoing message should say where to go in an emergency.
