  • Fissures. I'm guessing they told you witch hazel which will calm any itching and be soothing. He needs fiber in his diet, cut back on any constipating foods he eats, get him some prunes or prune juice will help also. If he has fissures, there will be blood in his poop. Fissures are tiny cracks in the anus. Yes, he could have fissures and they will heal if fiber is added to his diet.
