• I am following up on my visit with Louie at the Plymouth Banfield clinic yesterday. I won't recap everything that's already in your notes, and just get to my concern. Louie now has a bit of frothing come out of his mouth. I got him to open his mouth so I could check it out, and it's clear in color and like foaming saliva - not sure I'm explaining it right, but when I was messing with his mouth, he was wheezing in his nasal area. I tried to get him to eat tonight and he won't touch his food - not even spoon feeding him. I'm not sure if I should bring him in again, or if a vet can call me and give me some advice as to what I should do. I appreciate your help. My number is 651.964.8097

    Hi Bridget,
    If these symptoms have continued I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible if you have not already done so. The frothing at the mouth that you are describing along with wheezing and not wanting to eat is concerning. There can be a few different causes for these symptoms including nausea, a respiratory infection, or an underlying medical issue. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of Louie’s symptoms after they have examined him. They may recommend some lab tests and/or x-rays to help diagnose or rule out certain diseases. The treatment the needs will depend on the underlying cause of the symptoms.
