I am sorry to hear you are worried about Pongo. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Is Pongo drinking more water than usual, or less than normal, or about the same?

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color?

Is he more or less active than usual? Is he neutered?

Sorry for the questions! Since I can't see and examine him, the more you can tell me, the more help I can be.
