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

Can Tiny keep anything down?

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)?

How long had the knot been present?

Has his belly looked bigger? Feel fluid filled?
