Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian. I am sorry for the delay in response, it appears no experts were available when you posted your question. If you would like to continue can you please answer a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has this been going on?
2- Did he get into anything or eat something out of the ordinary?
3- Can you place your thumb and index fingers behind his canine teeth and press inward, this will help you open his mouth; Can you see if there is anything stuck under the tongue, gums or teeth?
4- How much does he weigh?

There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.
