my 6 year old Labrador has come back from an energetic walk

Customer Question

my 6 year old Labrador has come back from an energetic walk and has become very lethargic and is now breathing very fast, seems to be in some discomfort, have felt him all over and can find no specific points of tenderness, he has eaten his dinner ok (but he is a Labrador) thought maybe he had pulled a muscle but he is not limping but would not jump back in the car at the end of the walk.
