Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Are you able to obtain a rectal temperature on Charlie?
2) Is he still eating and drinking?
3) Any vomiting or diarrhea?
4) Has he been examined before although having not received vaccines?
