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


Has he had any vomiting, retching, gagging, lip licking, or grass eating?

What did the diarrhea look like?

Can he keep water down?


Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?


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


Could he have eaten something he should not have (ie bones, toys, rocks, plants, chemicals, etc)?
