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:

Do you see any mammary gland development for her now as compared to before?

If you squeeze a teat, do you see milk?

Has he had any diarrhea or vomiting?
