I have a 2 1/2 month old puppy (pit bull) and he sleeps alot, he eats fine now and drinks water fine as well. When i play with him hes very hyperactive. When we are not doing anything, he will sleep all day, non stop sleeping. Is this a bad thing or is this just normal?

Puppies can sleep 16 hours a day... As long as he's got some good play energy in him and he's not sick, he should be ok.

Ahh, it's normal, my 3/4 month old pup does the same thing everyday. Puppies are like babies. Babies sleep alot, then so should puppies. lol.

Yes it is normal for puppies to sleep a lot, but if your dog was sick and throwing up it could be lethargic and at that point a trip to the vet might be needed. How are things going?
