Squeaking while pooping?

Postby Versiris » Tue Jan 10, 2017 6:01 pm

Here goes a strange question... my BTS has been squeaking when he defecates for a few months now. I'm not sure how often he does it but sometimes it wakes me up in the morning (I look over and he's staring at me, mouth open and squeezing one out... lovely thing to wake up to lol) It sounds like he's straining but the stools seem normal, urates are sometimes hard. Today he squeaked / strained and only dropped a sperm plug and small urate.

Is this normal or worth a vet visit? I googled this but could only find this other thread from 2011.

My Eastern does that all the time. It's actually hilarious...when I first got him I didn't know what the sound was, I live next to a playground and I thought it was children screaming. Now I know it's just my little Gogootz passing gas...and he looks like he's smiling at me when he does. Boys...

I just experienced this with my 1 year old eastern. Her poop isn't dry at all and her urates are soft and all white. She basks and eats just fine too. I assumed it was because of the temperature, I noticed she shrieks louder while cold as ice and she squeaks quietly or make no sound at all when she's warm.
