Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he been like this?

Is the belly firm or fluidy feeling?

Has he had issues passing stool or has he not done so recently?

Are his gums pink or pale/white/blue?

Any breathing issues?
