Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long has he had these signs?

Can he eat or drink anything?

Can you see any oral blisters, ulcers, redness, or swellings?

Any changes to his breathing or paling of his gums?

Any idea of what he could have eaten?
