Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Ned! Is there anything that he could have gotten into? trash or medication or anything of that sort? Does he have a habit of eating things that he shouldn't like toys or socks, etc.?

Can you look him over and tell me:

  • are his gums pink or pale?
  • does he have pain if you press on his belly?
  • is he having trouble breathing?
  • did the vomit contain anything that looked like blood or dark coffee grounds?
