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. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:
How long has he had these signs?
Would you say he is coughing/retching up the mucus? Or actually vomiting?
Any discharge from his eyes or nose?
Has he been eating? Can he keep water down?
Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?
Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie bones, stones, socks, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
2 days, coughing the vomit, eating and drinking a little. Gums,paper to be ok. Could have ingested a plant.

Any belly tenderness?
