Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Riki has been bloated, vomiting, and has a cough. I am sorry to hear about what has been happening. I can help you with some over-the-counter remedies until you can get him to your veterinarian. Does that sound like a good plan to you?
