Hello. This is Dr Mike. I have been practicing for 19 years and I will be happy to help you today with all of your questions. First, I would like to start with a few questions to help me better understand your case.
Do you know what type of injections we had received? Any other underlying conditions ? Any changes in eating and drinking ? Are the gums pale or pink ?

He is not drinking water today and not wanting to eat today. He did try to swallow a small piece of beef very small but vomited and the bike was yellow. His eating habits are not that good but I put that down to his age? But certainly has been avoiding food today. I gave him boiled chicken last night but he vomited it up not long after he ate it.
