Is she spayed? She may be coming into her first heat. Good that you have a vet visit scheduled. If she is not feeling well, do not let them vaccinate her.

That happened to my dog. She was 4 and a half months and over 2 days she wouldn't eat much food and she was very lethargic and seemed tired. I found out that she had an upset stomach from a pig ear because she vomited, her poo was sloppy and when I gave her another one (on the 2nd day of sickness) she dug a hole and buried it.

I was also very worried because these were tick symptoms. Is she vomiting? I'd check her fur to make sure there isn't something tasty clinging in there. Taking her to the vet is a good idea, they'll find out what's wrong. Hope she gets better.

:-( So sorry to hear that....when Millie acted like that she had an injury in her mouth, they think from her jamming a stick in it....the vet appointment is a great idea...Millie felt much better after getting the meds she needed to reduce the swelling and pain...:-(

Good luck at the vet appointment. Fingers crossed it is nothing serious and she is up and around before you know it.

Previous thread

help please really important

Please wait until you get her to the vet. Low energy and whining are not enough for anyone on the net to even take a guess.

Be sure to let the vet know you've been giving aspirin, if they give you an Rx for pain, they need to know this. I guess Pano too after reading the other thread.

What about Lymes decease? (I think that's how you spell it) it causes lethargy, I know that much.
