Customer Question
My yellow lab was...

My yellow lab was unable to get up from laying and when she finally did she was stumbling and drooling profusely. We got ready to bring her to emergency vet and now she is walking normally and wagging tail and drinking water. Still has dialated eyes

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?

Sophie and she is about 5. We (my husband and I) had taken our usual afternoon walk with her. She seemed tired at the end of the walk but not unusually so

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

She is usually out of shape after winter and takes a while to get back up to speed
