Hi there. My cat Drizzle has frequently full anal sacs and I have to have them expressed by my vet’s office every few months. This time, there was a new tech. Since I brought her home Saturday, she has only had 1 bowel movement (yesterday morning). When she did, she strained and bled. I know from the past this is normal per my vet since the straining caused the blood vessel to rupture. The question I have is the last day she is now leaving small balls of feces around the house. It just falls out. Is this another side effect of the anal expression? Thank you!
