Q. 6 month old silky Terrier not acting right, very sleepy and is not active. Think its a cold but not sure. Hes eating very little and drinking

A. These are very non specific symptoms but puppies can go down hill very quickly. May have eaten something bad. If not vaccinated then could be something really bad. I would see a vet for treatment.
