Young Blossom has a dose of poopy butt. It's not diarrhea and its something she had since she was little which is one of the reasons I kept her.
Every now and then she has a couple of mushy cecals, not sloppy or runny just softer than usual and she manages to get it all over her bottom. The staining is horrible but usually fades after a few days.
Blossom behaved very well despite being bunrito'd and having our bottom held under a gently running faucet in the kitchen sink (oh the indignity!)
We then returned to the lounge for a gentle dry off and to have a few little knots clipped off. Dainty bits checked, all healthy with no inflammation.
Any ideas on what I can do to limit this and the best way to clean it, I generally use clean water without any soap of any kind. I have started to limit their breakfast greens as they were getting quite a bit but their big green feast is in the evening. They have been having a lot more sweet basil lately could excess of that bring on the mushy cecals ?
I found this link helpful when I was trying to help Stormy keep clean:
I used all-natural, unscented soap. "Nature Clean" brand.
