Customer Question
He's just laying in...

He's just laying in the same position for hours. Not responding to my voice or petting like usual. His eyes are really big like he's scared. He won't drink water or anything.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name and age?

***** ***** 11 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

***** *****

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

He has baby teeth that never fell out
