Hello. I am sorry to hear Bullitt has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help I just have a few questions.

When he did pass stool was it normal or soft?

Any recent changes to his diet?

Does he have long hair around the rectum, if so check to make sure there is no stool stuck in the hair?

Is he neutered?

Does he get bones or does he ever eat things he should not?

Is he still straining to go?

Have you seen him urinate if so was it a normal stream?
