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

How long has he been like this?

Has he had any vomiting, gagging, retching, or lip licking in the mornings?

Does he seem stiff when he first gets up? Does he warm with exercise?

Any change to his water intake, weight, or activity level in general?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
