• I have a 8 month old Great Dane his feces hasn’t been solid for about three days his energy level is kind of up and down he’s only eating about 2 cups a day what does this sound like?

    Hi Kevin, I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The diarrhea along with the lethargy and not eating as much is concerning. There can be a few different causes for this including infection, intestinal parasites, GI inflammation, or even an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment that he needs will depend on the severity and underlying cause of his symptoms.
