Dr. Susan :

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Dr. Susan :

The implant should not cause sedation.

Dr. Susan :

I'm worried that his decreased energy level is unrelated, and we should look into this further.

Dr. Susan :

There are many many things that could cause lethargy, including anemia, tick borne diseases, or major organ disease like liver or kidney problems.

Dr. Susan :

I suggest having him examined by a vet. I would start with a physical and some screening blood work.

Dr. Susan :

If he is eating, urinating and defecating normally, this can probably wait until Monday.

Dr. Susan :

If he is having any other issues, I would take him to an emergency hospital as soon as possible.
