Leo has been looked over more thoroughly with an x-ray, and nothing of significance was found. The vet said he was practically a perfect specimen as far as she was concerned. We then ran another urinalysis and fecal float at my insistence and both came back negative for infection and parasites.
So I am almost inclined to think his digestive system is just incredibly sensitive and that's why he has a hard time going. He will just sit in a corner or in his hidey and when he comes out after a while there is just a huge pile of poop! He just looks uncomfortable while he's going, sitting hunched up a little and squinting. I should also mention that he's always had large poops, and I wonder if it's because of the size that he's having troubles?
He was eating a little hay before and after the visit, and is still showing interest in eating his hay and pellets. I was able to give him a baby carrot when we got home last night, but he hasn't shown interest in veggies since. He is still passing stool, but it's very soft and is a little less than normal. I haven't noticed any weight loss yet, but I will be weighing him once a day to monitor that.
I should also mention too that when we came home last night, he peed a pale pink, which hasn't happened since. I sent off a urine sample to our usual vet to see if there's an infection going on. He has had UTI's in the past, and it's been a long time, but I wanted to be sure.
His buddy Morty is still with us, if you guys remember my thread for him in late March. It just seems to almost come in waves when one of them doesn't feel good, something happens to the others. If there is any info or advice you could give, I'd greatly appreciate it. Right now I'm practically on pig duty and staying as close to the cage as I can.
