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

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Is he bloated?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Expert:  Dr. B. replied 1 year ago.

I am so sorry he has.

Since we weren't able to aid you, I will send your question back to customer service.

Please take care,

Dr. B
