Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you 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.

How long has he had these signs?

Any chance he has eaten or licked something bitter or caustic? Eaten a bug?

Any retching, gagging, or vomiting? Is he willing to eat or drink?

While it may be a wee challenge, can you check inside his mouth for any sores, swellings, wounds, or anything caught?
