Hi. I have two boars (Carmel and Patches) they get along fine. About a week ago I took them off veggies because of their white pee and soft poop. It was probably more than a week by now though. Right now they’re on a diet of hay, pellets, and fresh water. The soft poop has been going on definitely longer than a week, maybe a month. I didn’t take away veggies until about a week though. I just thought that their systems would have stabilized by now. I’m just really worried. Patches nail was bleeding and had to get antibiotics to help with a mild infection. He’s fine now. The vet we went to was great! The only problem was that it was a long wait. If I had to though, I would go back. Does anyone have any advice on this topic? Any help is appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Hi!

Has your vet given you any advice on the persistent soft poos? Since both boys have it, it is not your normal overfermentation from too much fresh food or new food, which is usually taken care of by a couple of days off any fresh food.

Since both boys are affected, 'poo soup' is not an option, but you could try a course of fibreplex and see whether that does the trick. If not, then please see your vet it should be taken more seriously.

Thank you answering! I have not taken them to the vet yet. I’m also not familiar with fibreplex.
