Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

This is a situation where I can't help you online. You will need to take Malachi to see a vet right away. There is no at home treatment that will help him.

If you are having trouble paying for vet bills you may get some help here:

Help paying for vet bills.

I really hope Malachi is ok.
