Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

Can you clarify your question? You said he "acts simulant", and I am not sure what you mean by that. Is the mouth hanging open, or is he able to close it? I can't quite tell what you think the symptoms are and I need clarification.
