My puppy has been...

My puppy has been laying on the couch all day. She’s not eating and drinking very little...only what we have been able to coax her to drink. I’m worried.

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 your puppy. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your puppy?

No, I don’t think so.
