Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would love to help you with your problem

You found Mac to be not himself today, and indeed it could be that something is wrong and then again it could be it's just a passing thing.
Feeling the nose it not a very accurate diagnostic measure to determine if Mac is well or not , if he is running a temp or not.

1. is Mac still eating and drinking ?
2. has he vomited or had diarrhea
3. is he a scavenger and could have eaten something he shouldn't have?
4. when did Mac get his vaccinations done ?
5. did you try taking his temp and if so what was it ?

I shall be waiting for your answers
