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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Any retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Any breathing changes?

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

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Any chance he has eaten something irritating?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I went ahead and took him to our vet who thinks it may be allergies

Hello again,

I am glad to hear that your vet is addressing this for your lad. Since we could not aid you, I will pass your question back to customer service just now.

Best wishes,

Dr. B.
