• This seems to be normal for me, but Patches (the male) didn’t want to drink milk today, unlike his sister who did, and usually he would like to run outside for a few moments but spent the entire day sleeping, his sister seems to show the same result besides the milk. They both have not finished their food. They received their first round of vaccinations or so I am told by Friday, and they’ve been tired since then.

    Hi Binh,
    If these symptom have continued I recommend that you take them into see a veterinarian. Lethargy and not wanting to eat can be caused by the vaccines but this usually lasts less than 24 hours. If this has continued past 24 hours it is concerning that there may be another underlying cause. Your vet can talk to you more about the causes of their symptoms and the treatment they need after they have examined your pets.
