Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

How is he eating/drinking?

How many are in the litter?

How does he behave overall?

Any vomiting and/or diarrhea?

What are you feeding him?

How much do you feed at each feeding?
