Customer Question
She is not eating...

She is not eating or drinking today. Has been sleeping more than usual and lethargic the past couple days.

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 dog. What is the dog's name?

Chloe

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

She had some vaccines a couple weeks ago and we recently tried some new treats. They are all grain free
