Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. What did the diarrhea look like? Any blood?Any vomiting, gagging, or retching?Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that number by 6)? Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?If you press on his belly,does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
