Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
Do you think it smelled very acidic or was it quite irritating/burning to your nose?
Was there any blood?
Can he keep water down?
Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, coins, etc)?
Has he had any diarrhea?
