Default Hmm Uh Oh..

Alrighty, I have been surfing the net a little bit.

Boyfriends pup (8months) is fairly lethargic, which for him means sleeping a bit more then usual and just not wanting to play as much.

Hes up to date on ALL of his shots, is on wormer meds and flea tick prevention etc.

If he isn't back to himself by first thing tomorrow morning hes going to the vets or if he gets worse tonight he'll go in...

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

Hes not dehydrated according to the little home tests you can do to him (pinching skin and have it snap back, thumb pressed into gums).

Tim had said that he thought his urine was a darker colour as well, but he was also wearing his sun glasses as well... so it could have just been a "worry thought"...

Any other ideas?

Is his appetite good?

My dogs always sleep a lot when it's cold outside, but if that were the case with the pup I'd think he would've been sleeping more right when it started to get cold . . .

Could it be that he's just maturing and mellowing out or is it really pronounced lethargy?

What RD asked and then, how much is he drinking? Does he exhibit any signs of abdominal discomfort?

I'm interested to see what the vet says.

I told Tim to test out his belly and he showed no reaction at all, I was possibly thinking an obstruction but it doesn't seem to be that.

Hes a racing Husky, so for him to be lethargic is odd.. hes usually so hyped up.

Tim is taking him out for a walk to see if he'll pee again to see if he can see the colour of it again.

When it gets cold his dogs want to spent ALL their time outside playing, so I dont think weather has anything to do with it.

Tim said that he is eating just fine as well, hes taking him back to his place (hes at his parents right now b/c they were babysitting him while he was visiting here) to see if he'll eat his food at home for dinner time as well as he did during breakfast.

Another thing is, they just switched foods as well, but at his parents house they still have the old food.. switching back to the other food - would that cause lethargy>?

Well.. conclusion is in..

Tyr is back to himself today - yay.

We are assuming it was an upset tummy from getting into the garbage Friday night...
