Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I"m happy to help you with your question today.

Does he do any scooting of his butt on the floor?

Has he had diarrhea or loose stool for a while?

If so, how long?

Any unusual odor to him...such as fishy smell?

I just saw your response today. We had to take him to the emergency vet that night. He had an infection his regular vet failed to give him an antibiotic but put him on s regiment of prednisone. The emergency vet added an antibiotic and by the next day he was better. I thought an email would be sent in response to my question. But he is.okay now. Thanks
