I am dog sitting . The dog, a 10 year black lab type , orig from Italy, is limp, droopy and dull eyed, wags tail feebly,occasional coughing, now stopped. Nothing to eat since bfast, not drinking. Large pooh late afternoon, of normal appearance. Yesterday we had a wasp nest destroyed and the dog was seen to snap at a wasp< perhaps eat it? poison or sting? Today dog has had 3 walks, none longer than half mile, Concern because it's not my dog , I only know it slightly. The owner reports a penchant for wasp eating! i'd be grateful for your advice.
1 hour later. Dog has clenched mouth and still refuses to drink
I needed help yesterday, not 24 hours later! Our combined opinion is that the dog was suffering from heat exhaustion. Today the symptoms have diminished. Thanks for your helpful answer, in particular in relation to recovery,which hopefully will be more apposite tomorrow. Ann Kenward
