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, but can you tell me: Can you tell me what ingredients were in the fertilizer?How much do you think he had?Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?Any discomfort, tensing or pain if you press on his belly?
