Pale gums and the other symptoms you are describing are enough for me to tell you that this is a medical emergency. There is a good chance Tucker is bleeding internally and if you wait until the morning to get him seen he may be gone.

The best recommendation I can make for you is to get him to a veterinarian right now. I know it is inconvenient, but these symptoms mean he is most likely critical and may crash soon and you may lose him.

Please get Tucker to an emergency clinic as soon as possible.

Good luck I hope he is ok.

If this was helpful I would be most appreciative if you could take the time to rate my assistance so the site will credit me with helping you

Without a rating (the stars at the top) the site will not compensate me for helping you.

I am also here for additional questions you may have, just reach out to me here and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Kind regards,

Dr. Meghan Denney
