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

What does the vomit look like?

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
