Hello all, I am new here. I have a torti named Roxie. She is about 1 1/2 years old. Ok so here it goes... In the past month or two I have noticed that my Roxie's poop has been a lot smaller than usual, like little balls. Sometimes there may be a bigger one in the litter box but not as often as in the past. Now, I don't know if this is something I should be concerned about or not. She is a little chubby so I had stopped giving her wet food and decreased the amount of dry food she gets. I just associated the smaller poops to the fact that she was getting less food. She still eats and drinks with no problem and isn't in any pain. Today I gave her some wet food to see if that would make a difference but she hasn't used the litterbox yet. I am nervous that maybe I should be more concerned. Also, I noticed that sometimes a few of the balls are connected by what appears to be my own hair. Could this be the issue? Should I give her some type of hair-ball remedy?? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
