Question:

: My 4 year old often has a small bits of feces stuck to his anus. Of course I'm cleaning him daily. Why is this happening and is there a way to prevent it?


Response:

Hi Joshua,

Perhaps you might want to change the food you are giving him. Take a week to gradually switch him to a different food. A high quality kibble will produce smaller, more dense stools, hopefully this should help.
