Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that you are concerned because your little one, Lexie, appears to be sleeping more than usual today.
On a positive note she ate and drank normally and played well.
Puppies this age do play hard and sleep hard. Some days they sleep more than others because they need more rest to grow.
If she were vomiting or eating very poorly, had diarrhea or a fever (rectal temperature greater than 103F) I would be more concerned. And certainly if her behavior persists for several days and she becomes more lethargic then she should see your family veterinarian.
But one day of needing more rest is not something I would be very worried about.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
