Hi I'm Rosie one of the vets and I'd like to try and help you and Bud. I have a couple of questions if that's ok
- do you mean his stools are black, or dark brown?
- any fresh blood in them?
- are they slimy?
- anything like coffee grounds?
- any vomiting?
- have you changed his diet recently? what food is he normally on?
- does he scavenge at all?
- how is he in himself?
You can get back to me by hitting 'reply'. Thank you - the extra information will really help. Rosie.
