Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

You noted that Crackles isn't using her litter tray. Do you means she is going elsewhere or not at all?

Has he had any vomiting or diarrhea lately?

Does she want to eat, then turn away? Or does she have no interest?

Any retching, pawing at her mouth, drooling, lip licking, or hard swallowing?
