Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear Milo has this issue.Has he been seen by a vet and had his first vaccines?
Do you know if his mother was vaccinated?
Is he happy to eat and play?

Without further information it is very difficult for me to provide the best advice but I shall certainly try.

Offer warm chicken if needed and ensure the air is well ventilated and free of dust and smoke.

I do hope this helps.
