Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How long had he had diarrhea?

Does he have any inflammation or redness around his rectum?

Any discomfort when you lift his tail?

Is he passing urine normally?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
