I am sorry that you have been waiting for a response. I recently just logged onto the site and noted that your question hasn't yet been answered. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you if you are still needing assistance, but need a bit more information in order to better assist you if you don't mind.

Can you look at his gums and see if they are nice and pink and if the color comes back quickly when you press them. Are they wet or tacky to the touch?
