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

How long ago did he eat this?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can he keep water down?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

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

Is he passing stool normally?
