Hi this is Dr. Dani, I'm a small animal veterinarian and I'm happy to help with Gage. I'm sorry he's feeling so sick. Was there any vomiting, diarrhea or coughing? Is he urinating and defecating? Did the vet give you an idea of what they thought was wrong, or are they waiting on the lab results? Did they send you home with any medications to give him? Please give me some additional information and I'll be happy to offer some suggestions.
