Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Are you sure he hasn't passed urine in 2 days?

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, hardness, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
