Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Has Leo had any changes in food, treats or people food?

When was the last time you saw him defecate?

Can you describe his symptoms?
