Customer Question

My German Shepherd bitch is so lethargic this morning. She is a rescue dog and have had her a few weeks. She is the sweetest thing. She didn't eat her breakfast this morning just as if someone has switched her lights out. She doesn't feel hot and not dehydrated. Help please.

Welcome. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 15 years. Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your girl's situation. I need to ask some questions.

1) How old is she?

2) Is she spayed?

3) Is she breathing harder, with more effort?

4) Does she look distended in her abdomen?
