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

How long ago did he eat the moldy food? Was that 24 hours or his signs?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

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

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

Anything else he could have gotten into (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
