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

What antibiotic was started?

Is he straining to pass stool?

If you press on his belly, is he sore there? Anywhere else?

What did his stool look like before? Any blood or black material?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?
