My dog is a 7 year old yellow lab mix, normally high energy

Customer Question

My dog is a 7 year old yellow lab mix, normally high energy and spunky. Within a day, she became lethargic, is drinking a lot of water and is panting more than usual. It's now been 36 hours and I have an appointment with my vet tomorrow afternoon, but what signs should I look out for, in case she needs urgent care? Thanks!!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The veterinarian will know how to help your dog. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Kaya
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Kaya?
Customer: She also came down with an eye infection, but she's already been seen by an opthamologist today for it; she has chronic episcleritis
