    DefaultLab has no energy

    Our 20 month old yellow lab wouldn't eat Friday night and has had almost no energy all weekend. He did eat today and did go on his walk, but he is very lethargic. I am going to call the vet Monday, but I am just wondering if anyone has a clue on what is going on here.

    His legs also seem very tender - he lays down very gingerly and doesn't like to get up.

    Any ideas? Or do I just wait to Monday and get him to the vet?

    Thanks.

    I don't know what causes that, but I think he needs to get to a vet ASAP. :-\

    Is he drinking water? Have you taken a temp on him? If he's refusing food and water (or even just being unenthusiastic about food - they are labs afterall!) I'd probably take him to the vet if he was mine. Any chance he ate something he shouldn't have?

    The refusing of food and the lethargy are troubling to me, and it seems as though he is in some discomfort.

    If he were mine, I'd be at the e-vet right now.

    First thought is Pano but 20 months is too old for that as far as I know.

    Wondering how he is doing. Update? Hoping you went to the vet.

    The first thing that comes to mind is Lyme Disease. My one Lab had it and he had the exact symptoms that your dog is having. Brenda
