3) Are the stools normal?

1. a few months ago. has gotten worse.

JACUSTOMER-8qd9s1sk- :

2. a few times a week

JACUSTOMER-8qd9s1sk- :

3. sometimes

CriticalCareVet :

Unfortunately - I am worried that veterinary care is needed. There are lower cost options to consider.

CriticalCareVet :

But if this has been going on for a few months, I worry there is an underlying cause.

CriticalCareVet :

Even a partial or intermittent blockage

CriticalCareVet :

We can also not rule out systemic disease.

CriticalCareVet :

There are certain veterinary hospitals, (EXAMPLE HERE) that offer a free examination your first time there - which may be a great way for you to find out what is going on before spending a lot of money!

CriticalCareVet :

You can also find a veterinarian that can perform this and offer a payment plan for you. This website can help with that (LINK HERE).
