Verified

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

What does the vomit look like? All white/foam?

Can he keep anything 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)?
