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

How long has Koko been showing a reduced appetite? Do you think he is favoring softer foods like fruits?

Any drooling or wet chin?

Any tensing or tenderness when you press on his belly?

Is he passing as much stool as normal? Is it bigger or small er then before?
