Hi everyone
This may sound silly but I have just bathed Harry and it all O.K until he flashed me which straight after a white substance came out. This is the third time he has flashed in a few days but the first time the white stuff has come out. What is it??????
Are we right to be almost sure Harry is a male.

Thanks again for all your help

Mel, Steve and Harry

I'm new also, but googled white poo..... It's normal, part of them getting rid of uric acids or waste. Try google search and it will explain it better..

Hi I've had Harry for about 2 months and he is 20 months old I usually bath Harry every day for about 15 mins he loves his baths and always does a poo lol :winkgrin: and Harry normally passes urates maybe once a week sometimes twice but not always in his bath sometimes I've seen a little in his house. Hope this helps!!!!!!
