Thread: Poop question

  1. #1

    Default Poop question

    Morning.

    I just got up to find poop on the landing floor. OH had left it for me. It was soft like peanut butter, but dark brown, not runny. So I'm guessing unformed ceco? Sorry no photo. Both buns were sitting next to it, I checked their cute bums and couldn't see anything stuck to them. Phew.

    I've noticed the odd uneaten ceco after medication, but never at any other time. They are both munching hay and seem normal. Could they have just had too many treats? We are also giving them Timothy hay, which they don't normally have. Their treats are all natural forage. Their litter tray has lots of normal boulders in it.

    Might just be a one off incident and I would not be overly concerned given that everything else is fine. Maybe cut back on the treats if they are the shop bought type that sometimes contain grains too

    Thanks Jane. I did give them some new science selective natural stick treats. That were blackberry flavour. So maybe it was them.

    This had me wondering about your OH's toilet habits.

    Are they moulting as this can upset their poohs?

    Having looked at the ingredients I think they are the prime suspects x

    Eek I thought they looked ok. What do you think it was? I bought them so Pip had something to gnaw her incisors on.
