My chocolate Lab a few hours after his walk seemed tired, depressed

Customer Question

my chocolate Lab a few hours after his walk seemed tired, depressed and just not himself. I noticed also across the end of his nose it seemed whitish and his nose was very dry.

Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...
How long has he been feeling poorly?
Was his walk unusual at all (longer, warmer temps, ect)?
Has Logan ever had tick exposure?
Any new foods/treats/people food?
Is he eating/drinking/urinating/defecating normally?

I did notice a problem when I came home and found swelling to his right lower jaw. I took him to the Vets and he has a broken tooth and a abscess. The Vet placed him on antibiotics and pain meds. Thank you anyway. Glad this service is available.
