Hello. I am sorry to hear that your little one is not doing well. I apologize that no one has assisted you sooner. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions.

When did he last pass stool and was it normal?

Any recent changes in diet including new foods, treats or human foods?

Does he eat things he should not such as toys, clothing or other nonfood items?

Any chance he got in to anything toxic?

Has he been fully vaccinated?
