Hopefully this is the correct place to post this. Thanks to all of the information on this site.My bride and I dealt with our first bout of pasty butt. I don't know if it was a full blown pasty butt or not but there was some crusties around her vent and not to chance it we proceeded as if is was. It went as smooth as silk. Got the little bugger cleaned up and dried off and back in the box. As soon as she hit the pine shavings she pooped. I do believe that is a good sign. After all was said and done I feel like the "Yukon Vet"
