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

How long has he had these signs?

Does he seem sore anywhere?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

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

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

Any changes to his breathing?

Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
