Customer Question
Same as the lady...

Same as the lady with the toy poodle with lethargy- mine was climbing snow banks so I’m thinking similar situation- she doesn’t want me to touch her so probably pain- I have some liquid anti inflammatory meds the vet gave me for her hip- should I give her some?

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 and age?

Lanie and she is 11

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

Not really. She’s very normal except for needing a dental

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Ok, it sounds like she is sore definitely. What is the medication you have at home?

Metacam 0.5
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Ok, perfect. I would start that up once a day for the next 3 days and see if that helps with the lethargy.
