I woke up this morning to find my little Winchester super bloated. It's happened once before but he made this weird little wiggling thing with his tail and all of a sudden his belly wasn't bloated anymore (i'm guessing he was pooping?) but now it's not passing. What should I do. For all the info look below. Sorry I have no pictures but bloating is pretty easy to imagine. Lol!
