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:

Can you check Scout's blood glucose?

Does he seen sore anywhere (ie when you press on his belly, his back or legs)?

Any breathing changes?

Does his breath smell fruity or like nail polish remover?

Any gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?
