Rabbit pellet / Hard lumpy stool (Scybalous Stools)


Written by John Immel, Asheville, NC
Small, hard stool indicates either dryness in the colon or that the stool is sitting in the colon for too long. Hard, dry stools are considered to be a sign of constipation. When stool sits in the colon too long, it begins to rot. The rotting stool continues to be absorbed into the bloodstream, poisoning the blood. When the blood is poisoned, your skin loses its luster, becoming gray, pale and lifeless. Your teeth may become gray as well. Hard stool with gas is considered to be a sign of heat and dryness. Hard stool without gas is considered to be a sign of coldness.
