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:

What treatments is he on just now?

Has he stool been loose?

Does he seem sore in his rectal region?

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

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

Can he keep water down?
