I can always tell by the way Herbie walks or goes up stairs if he is getting constipated.......I've had a lot of experience with him
Thanks. It seems to be a total crap shoot at this point. It goes from IBD/Sensitive stomach to MegaColon. The bloodwork ruled out any other kind of issue (besides possible neurological).

When looking at the xray yesterday, his colon was quite distended. Not sure if that means it will ever come back down to regular size (this is the only time he's ever been this massively constipated).

We will be picking him up tomorrow and will hopefully have more answers then.
