Customer Question
Her butt area is...

Her butt area is very tender and she doesn't sit down all the way and she is walking very gingerly. I did not see any redness visable but if I press near her anus it seems to be extended behind her tail. She hasn't pooped today but has been drinking water a little and eating a little, not as much as she usually does though

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did the cat have a fall?

I am not aware of her falling

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the cat's name and age?

Lily and she is around 7

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lily?

We took her to a vet a few months ago for puking up hairballs all the time, and they gave her some special food and probiotics,

I'm sorry Lily is having some trouble - have you seen her in the litter box trying to go at all today?

When you clean the litter box, is her poop usually little nuggets or longer pieces?
