    I just called the vet that the last owner took him and they never heard of the owner or remember doing a anal prolapse so we have a appointment at 2:30 today so hopefully they see what the problem is.

    Hello and thank you for taking in thei baby and giving him a new home.

    Anal prolaspe is going to cause all the issue you are mentioning, it will take a couple of months for his system to settle in and get to 'normal'. I have a French Bulldog that had this as a young pup and he was on a special diet (somethig from Science Diet, which is fine short term)for two months then SLOWLY transitioned to a high quality food (Fromm Pork and Peas). Even after the transition, he would poo 4 or 5 times a day , but after about 3 months he settled in and it is all cleared up.

    Get him on a schedule and use lots of praise and treats (use his kibble) to get him to learn to go outside.. try to stay out there till he goes and praise, praise, praise.

    We have a name for him now "RHINO" and we took him to the vet and he has nerve damage in his anal region so we have to put ointment on him, we have to put pampers on him or he will poop everywhere he may always have this problem but hopefully not his backend is raw looking and when the doc put his finger in him. EWWWWW, Rhino didn't even feel it is so hopefully in 2 months or so he will feel much better. He also had mange so he's on medicine for that to so that could also be the problem, so he is in good hands now. We are trying to bring this fellow back in to shape....

    I'm glad the vet was able to give you some answers, and hopefully he will continue to improve in your care. You are great to give this Little guy a new loving home, and a new start.

    I can't even say the things I'm feeling right now...I am glad you've taken
    Rhino in and gotten a dx, will be praying it resolves itself.

    Lisa @desertskybulldogs...is a breeder here and says medicated Gold Bond
    Powder works best for chapped, raw butts...heals them right up.

    Keeping y'all in prayer~GOD bless!

    Now what is giving us a problem is potty training because he cant feel in his back end. This going to be a challenge. And also today he looks like he feels better because he is running around and messing with the cat. lol

    Once the boy gets some GOOD food, and nutrition, he will feel alot better. It will certainly be difficult to "potty" train him-if not impossible, due to nerve damage. The diapers will be necessary. Once he gets GOOD nutrition, when he adjust to it, the pooping should be firm, and he hopefully will not get so sore. It is great of you to care for Rhino!! My vet also recommends Gold Bond powder.
