Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

He seems to be ok and sleepy but is breathing very heavily...not like the norm..

Veterinarian's Assistant: 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?
