I am sorry to learn Lacy is having trouble defecating. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Was she able to pass any stool? If so, was it hard or soft?

2- How much does she weigh?

3- Did she get into anything or eat something out of the ordinary?
