My daughters 10 month old cocker spaniel is lethargic, off

Customer Question

My daughters 10 month old cocker spaniel is lethargic, off his food and periodically trembling. He is normally very boisterous. He ate his food rather slowly this Morning, usually it's gobbled down quickly. Tonight he ate nothing when offered. He's done two poos today like normal and peed a few times.He also seems to be lying uncomfortably.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Harris, please? I understand that it's late where you are and you might not reply until the morning.

Regretfully, lethargy, inappetence, and appearing to be uncomfortable when lying down aren't pathognomonic (specifically indicative) of any one particular disorder. Please let me know if new signs have arisen that might help clarify Harris's malaise.
