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

How long has he had these signs?

Does he pass watery or dilute urine?

Does he appear sore when he eats?

Any drooling, gagging, vomiting, or diarrhea?

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

Is he on any treatments just now?
