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

How long have they had these signs?

Is the formula kitten specific?

Any sneezing or nasal discharge? What color? From one or both nostrils?

Are their gums pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count each one's breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?
