My dog, whom I refer to as my baby gorl, "girl" her name is
any place around here is gonna cost hundreds of dollars just to walk in the door. Lexi was groomed on Thursday at the groomers, place she has been many many times. She came home and was fine and ate fine that night. She did go to sleep early but I chalked that up to being worn out since being at the groomer all day and since Lexi is overweight I assumed standing for a while while being groomed really made her worn out. Friday she woke up and was extremely lethargic all day and still is. She is not eating but she is drinking. I started giving her pedialyte, I mixed it with her water and she's drinking that. Since she has been lethargic she has been sitting and I would have to prop up her bum and she would walk but about 2 hrs ago I put her down off my Bed and when I prop up her rearend she just stands there and won't walk. Then she stands there for a few minutes and then she sits so I propped up her rearend again and she walked over to her water and she sat down again and she refused to walk anymore. … read more
