So my one year old chin just got over a bout of antibiotics for a parasite followed by some bad constipation. I took him to the vet yesterday and he got a clean bill of health (his fecal test came back normal). He is now pooping just fine (it is really hard now), but I still notice a slight smell. You got to get in real close to smell it, but it bothers me that it is still there. Could it be that he is still passing the built up gas or is this just how he probably is?

I don't really have any more ideas, just wanted to reply so you don't think you are being ignored. Since the vet gave him the all clear he might be ok, maybe just give him a bit more time and see if the smell goes away. If you mean fresh warm poop it can have a very slight faint smell but should not have a smell once cool.

I just had one of my boys out and I sniffed his poop as soon as it came out (he pooped and I picked it right up from under him) and it does have a slight smell if I put it right up to my nose (... and now he is looking at me like I'm crazy :ROFLMAO:) if that is what you mean. As far as I know my boys are healthy and fine... just judgy, lol.

Yes, it's only when it's fresh does it have a smell. I'm glad it's just another case of me freaking out over nothing. And yes, Buttons also looks at me like I'm losing it when I'm basically huffing his poo. Thanks for your input. It is a huge relief.(y)
