During every office visit, I ask each client “Does your pet have a normal stool?” Or, “Does your pet have soft or hard stools?” Unless the client is bringing their pet in for explosive diarrhea, most clients think this is an odd question and most honestly don’t really know what their pet’s stool really looks like. Surprisingly, this is especially true of my cat clients. I would have thought they would be the most observant pet owners, but they are not. I think most of my cat clients are just happy that it’s in the litter box and assume it’s normal. This, however, is not always true.
