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:

Now I am glad that we can rule out drugs, but any chance he ate anything harmful (ie plants, chemicals, fertilizer, human meds, etc)?

Any chance of head trauma or known health issues?

Any head tilting, head pressing into walls?

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