Hi. My name is***** Do you think that the stool may be stuck on the fur around the rectal region? Sometimes there can actually be material in the stool that isn't let it pass very easily or at all. Could there be fur in it? Other material like string? In a situation like this, light traction on the material can be done to see if it can be removed. If this is just stuck on the fur, then it will come off with pressure and maybe a moistening of the area. If there is material in it that is still inside, that is when it gets potentially very serious.
