nothing just started but all vets are closed
It sounds like your baby is in discomfort. Are his gums pink?
good-does his belly appear bloated?
yes it does
he just went outside and went to number 2 if that helps and it was runny
previous to this he had chronic ear infections if that might help
This is a cause for concern-GI upset can cause what you are describing. However, a bloated belly can progress to a serious condition which can become life threatening. If he ate a new type of food, treat, table food, or something else he is not used to could have caused this. Your baby REALLY should be seen by a vet-especially due to his age so we can begin the appropriate treatment before this progresses. There may be an emergency clinic in your area. The ear infections are related at this point.
in the mean we have dog aspiren should we give him that
I would not, as we do not want to upset his tummy more! Injectable medications would be a better idea at this time.
