What causes pellet stools?

Constipation?: Dry, hard pellets can often be consistent with constipation. Stay well hydrated (at least 8 - 8 ounces glasses of water per day). Try to get in 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day – get that fiber in. Stay physically active if possible.
