Hi Kay
How long has it been since you saw the last poo? Click and drag me down to the editor
I have just had the same problem with mine, I did give her Aloe which you can buy from any garden centre or Opuntia (Cactus) plus two quite warm deepish baths per day, and today we had a result, it has been 3 wks since she went, following coming out of hibernation, I have learnt not to panic, as we have been down this road a few times before. Have they been passing urates Ok?
