Hello & welcome. I apologize that my colleagues could not assist you while I was away. Still, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long has he had hiccups (since that is not herpes specific)?

How long has he had these signs generally?

Did the vet actually test for the virus?

Does he have any oculonasal discharge? Clear or purulent/snotty?
