Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What is he being fed?

When did he last pass stool and is he straining to do so?

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

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

We solved the problem - it was a lot of gas that got worse with worming medicine. Took about 90 minutes for us to help her by burping and light massage and for it all to pass and then she returned to normal - like magic. We are keeping an eye on her. Thank you anyway.
