Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a few questions for

you to better assess your situation.

Is there any blood or mucus in the stool?

Any difficulty/straining to defecate, trying to go multiple times, or the urge to defecate often?

Any recent changes in diet, new treats, given human food or gotten into the trash?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No blood, mucus or worms. He's also had lyme disease shots each year.

Thanks for the information. What about the answers to the last two questions?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a one time attempt beginning normal and ending in loose. Usually another stop for loose
