I was hoping to hear back from you so we could talk about Bootsy.
I have some suggestions that may help him.
He may get constipated so lets pick up all dry food and feed him canned only.
That will keep him well hydrated. I would also give him one inch of cat lax lie laxatone or petromalt every day. That will make his stools softer and easier to pass.
If it is still hard he can have an ounce or whole milk every day.
You can apply a dab of raw honey to his anus any time it is sore.
Please let me know if this helps him pass his stools easier.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer with positive feedback, as that is the only way I receive recognition from the site for my assistance. Thank you!
