My dog is a Yorkie about 10lbs she is very sluggish, not interested in eating and moving very slowly. What do I give her to help

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?

Chloe and she is 12

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

No not really she was in the hospital 5 years ago and it was determined that the treats she was eating caused her some liver damage. My wife knows all the facts but she is working.

Last two days. I took her for a long walk yesterday but she was so sluggish and I’m concerned she may be constipated, she only peed on her walk which is not like her

Haha been through that stage, I want my wife here because she has all Chloe’s information. She will not be home until 10:30 Toronto time. I’m not sure what your time zone is.
