What is fatigue in dogs?


We humans can get inordinately jealous of the way our dogs can sleep anywhere, anytime but it’s perfectly normal for your dog to spend lots of his time napping when there’s nothing interesting going on. However, if your dog’s tired all the time and seems to have lost his enthusiasm for life it’s known as fatigue or lethargy and that can be a bit of a worry.

Fatigue is a symptom that your pooch isn’t feeling himself rather than an ailment in itself, and it’s important to find out what’s causing it as although it might be something quite minor and easily treatable it could be something more serious too. Don’t stress out too, perhaps your pooch is just tired after a walk or play session and will wake up in the morning full of the joys of spring but if the fatigue persists you should consult your vet.

So, if you’re sat there thinking my dog seems sad and tired all the time and wondering why he isn’t rushing to greet you at the door with his tail wagging read on to discover the common symptoms and causes of why he could be.
