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

How old is he?

How long has he had these signs?

Does he look like he is straining to pass stool?

When did he last pass urine?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?

Does he belly feel hard, firm, sore or distended?
