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

How much blood did you see (a spoonful, more or less)?

What is he bringing up in his vomit?

Can he keep any water down?

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

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

Could he have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
