Why Is Your Dog So Lethargic?
Dogs sleep and lounge far more than humans so it can be difficult to tell how much is too much. However, it is an important distinction to make as lethargy is a symptom of many major illnesses.
Keep in mind that some breeds are less active than others and that most dogs rest more frequently with age and the changing of the seasons.

Causes can range from eating too fast to “garbage gut” (dietary indiscretion) or even deadly stomach torsion (bloat).
