Dogs can become lethargic for many reasons; a health condition, ingesting some type of toxin or even ingesting an item we consider to be 'good' including grapes and raisins. See a vet immediately.

Things that can make your dog lethargic and weak can range from infection and disease to pain and medication. And because weakness and lethargy can indicate anything from a chronic condition to a life-threatening illness, you should always talk to your vet when you notice either symptom.
