Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling, vomiting, or diarrhea?

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

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

Does he seem sore anywhere else (ie back, hips, spine, neck, around his rectum, etc)?

Could he have eaten something she should not have (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, etc)?

No he doesn't seem to have any of these symptoms .. dad did put down some grass tranquilliser that he could of eaten but he doesn't seem to have a sore stomache and there is no vomiting or diareah..
Maybe he has been bitten by a spider or something? What do we do how do we make sure he is going to be okay we are scared he won't make it through the night :(

Hi again,

Do you mean fertilizer? Where there any chemicals in that?

Any signs of bites or ticks?

How is his breathing?

Are those gums pink?
