Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

When did he last pass stool? What did his last stool look like (ie hard, diarrhea, etc)?

Any lumps, redness, sores, or wounds around his rectum?

Is he holding the tail down or cannot physically lift it up?

Does he have feeling in the tail?

Any history or trauma?
