Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with 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:
How long has Todd had these signs?
Do you mean there is fluid between the skin and ribs or inside the chest and abdomen?
Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Any issues breathing?
Are the gums darker for him?
Any chance of trauma or exposure to rat bait/anti-coagulants?
Has he had any diarrhea or know health issues?
Since it isn't clear what you mean by "faces out under his face", can you take a photo of this to let me see what you are seeing? To post a photo, you can use the paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.
