Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

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

How long have you been seeing these signs?

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

Are his gums pink, yellow, 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 medications/drugs, etc)?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Gizmo is feeling better today. No shivering seen and he ate normally in the morning. Gizmo has had some symptoms of not feeling well off and on for a week. A week ago he threw up all his food which was a lot. Last night he threw up too but it was a small amount of stomach fluid...no food. Gums appear pink and no lip licking (unless he has eaten something). He was coughing a lot yesterday as if he had something in his lungs. I think the coughing stopped after he threw up. No tenderness to his belly today but he has yelped occasionally when picked up in the recent past which we couldn't identify why. No evidence of having eaten anything harmful. Hard to tell breathing rate, so I'm guessing 30.

I have a question about my puppy. Nothing is the matter.
Nothing is the matter. It's more of a general question. I got his sister about 7 weeks ago at 8 weeks old and have been taking her to get rounds of shots at the vet after she received an initial 5 way shot. She's had 2 rounds with 1 more to go that includes rabies and such. I just got this puppy (her brother) this weekend, now 15 weeks old. The owner said that he had a 5 way (same time she did) and also a "9 way?" I want them to get on the same type of schedule but have no idea what shots he needs to catch up. The only thing I know that he needs for sure is rabies and kennel cough. … read more
