Reply to Gina's Post: He is due for his shots in June and he seems to be eating a little more than usual. His bathroom habits are still normal. The only thing is he usually trots his entire walks, yesturday and today he is walking. I can tell he is not feeling 100%

It is likely he has an upper respitory infection that will need antibiotic treatment. Tomorrow give your vet a call to have him checked out. Until then, keep him hydrated. You can do this by adding some plain pedialyte to his drinking water. You can also safely give him bendryl 1-2mg per pound of body weight to give him some relief. It is also possible that he has an airborn allergy. You can discuss this with your vet also. Hope this helps and good luck and hope your boy feels better soon :)
