I am sorry to hear your dog is sick this holiday. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will be glad to help, but I am not able to make phone calls for the website. I can help you here, or I can opt out and you can wait for an expert who can make calls.

How long has he been sick and not eating? Can you take his temperature with a thermometer? If you check his gums, are they pink in color or are they pale?

Let me know if you would like me to continue or to opt out.
