older akita husky symptoms
(mesa, az, usa)
What would be possible cause of white gums, rapid heart rate and lethargy in older akita husky?
It's impossible to say for sure what's going on with your dog, and I'm not a vet so can't give you a professional opinion.
However, the symptoms you describe could mean that your dog is having trouble with his heart. These signs could also indicate heatstroke, a severe parasitic infection and other possibilities. In older dogs there can be all sorts of problems but only a full exam by your vet can make an accurate diagnosis.
I can say that it sounds serious though and I strongly recommend that you get your dog an appointment with your vet just as soon as you can. I wish you the best of luck and hope your dog is doing better soon.
