Customer Question
My dog is very...

My dog is very lethargic today. Normally enjoys her morning walks and today she barely would walk and stopped frequently during our walk

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 your dog's name and age?

Sophie, 7 years old. Rescue that I adopted May of 2017

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

Sometimes she vomits up a little bit of bile while we are out walking

Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Sophie is not feeling well. It sounds like she might be in some pain and that's why she did not want to walk this morning. Is she limping? She may have abdominal pain, as well, if she's got an underlying issue that also causes her to vomit occasionally.

She was not limping and does not appear to be in pain, just doesn’t want to do anything.
