Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
My worry for Wilbur is that he appears to be dehydrated. This will cause this cold , hard stool that has a sandy appearance. The yellow color is not a concern since this is usually caused by bile in the stool which can be normal. I would not worry tooo much about Wilbur since he is healthy other than this minor sign. I would recommend giving him 5 cc of Pedialyte every 4 - 6 hrs which will help keep him hydrated with extra electrolytes. For some reason, his body is not taking in enough fluids and this may be normal for him or it could indicate a kidney issue. If this continues, I would recommend that you have blood work done on Wilbur just to be safe.Does that make sense to you?
