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

Was the stool black? How much blood did you see (a spoonful, more or less)?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking or vomiting?

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)?
