    Okay, you put him to sleep. Please check on him during the night. If you see bubbles coming out of his mouth, do what I just suggested. Hopefully, this will help relieve the symptoms. Then, in the morning, take him in and tell the vet all that was done.

    Good morning. How's the little guy? Is he up and moving? Did you take him to see the vet? I'm still very worried about him :(
