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

Can you post a photo of this. To post them, you can either 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.
