Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.

I am so sorry that Kai is experiencing such distress. I would definitely advocate for you taking him to be professionally examined. Many times we have no idea that our pets have come in contact with something toxic, or some other physical trauma has occurred without a hands on exam. It sounds as if this might be one of those situations that time is important, so hopefully you can have him examined quickly. Better safe than sorry.

I hope this makes sense & you find the information helpful. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Best of luck that all is well with Kai.
