1) Are you seeing any vomiting?
2) What food is being offered? Kibble? canned?
3) Do the inside of his eyes or ears appear yellow? Do his gums appear yellow?
4) Has he been drinking?

They really should not have vaccinated him if he had not been eating.

What types of canned food have been offered?

Does he show any interest to boiled chicken, sliced cheese or tuna?
