Sometimes things can be explained with simple answers...

My Scooby, (31 weeks) is a guy that has always followed daily patterns: eat a couple of greens after waking up, farts (my camera has volume), then poops, every single day.

For the last four days, he has looked uncomfortable, has not eaten his greens, and has not had a stool.

I was getting some olive oil ready to give a drop or two on his nose. My husband saw a patch of shed coming off of his hind end (choaca). He was not shedding anywhere else.

So after this area shed, his poop was about 3x3 inches.

This wall of words is just to say that I never thought about stuck shed, or looking at this area. I truly believe that this odd shed caused the lack of stools.
