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

Did he keep that water down?

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

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

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

Has he had any diarrhea?
