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

How long has he had these signs?

Can you take a breathing ratefor me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Does he have any pain or tensing if you press on his belly?

Has he had an vomiting, appetite loss, straining to pass urine or feces or any other signs?
