Diminished appetite or refusal to eat, diminished or no bowel functions, lethargy, possible "grunting" noises when being handled due to abdominal pain. Having just saved Travis from an impaction of calci-sand, I am well aware of the warning signs. If you suspect it at all and cannot get to the vet right away, be certain to keep his hydration up through warm soaks for at least ten minutes daily. If he has completely stopped taking in food you can do it 2-3x a day. This is one of the things they did when Travis was at the vet for several days. The key to them getting over impaction is treatment ASAP. Don't let the material harden in his gut where he is unable to pass it on his own, thus the importance of hydration. If you suspect it, do not delay! Hope that helps--Diane
