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:

Have you seen any other signs?

Any breathing changes, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Any change to his drinking or appetite?

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

Does he seem sore anywhere?

Could he have eaten anything harmful (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
