It is possible to get a vet out.....i'll talk to dad about it.
Yeah...poor thing....poor old (young really) fella!
You said it right here, because they are big and heavy it puts stress on the joints as well. I'm sure he is getting a bit of arthritis or some other joint ailment that goes with getting old. Its probably tough for him to stand for long periods so he lays down a lot.
