Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue. Can you look at his back end and tell me if you can see his anus well, or whether it is covered in fur? (This breed often gets matted fur over the anus)
