Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I am so sorry to hear that your Cody is having difficulty having bowel movements. I have just a few questions

- Why is he on steroids and primor?
- Had he had diarrhea prior to having constipation and is he straining to defecate but not producing?

Thank you
