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:

How long has he had this gag?

Any appetite loss, vomiting or retching with this?

Any sneezing or eye/nose discharge?

Any changes to his breathing?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Did that start 2 days ago as well?
