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

Does he have any wounds on his side? Or is he sore when you press there?

Is he passing urine normally?

You noted lip licking, any gagging, retching or vomiting?

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

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?
