Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

1) How old is Milo?
2) Any stressful changes to his environment?
3) Was he ever holding it fully or has this just now developed?
4) What diagnostics, if any, have been performed by your vet and when?
5) Does the stool appear normal?
6) What does he usually eat? What treats are used? Any human food?
