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

What does his vomit look like?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Sticky or moist?

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

Could he have eaten anything he should not have (ie plants, toxins, toys, bones, medications, etc)?

Any diarrhea?
