Why do I have hard small bowel release, goat-like bowel sizes?

Dehydration. Pelletized stool is most often due to inadequate fluids or an excee of caffeinated or alcoholic fluids, both of which dehydrate you. Be sure to take in 80-100 ounces of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluid everyday, more if you excercise. Try this for 2 weeks and if not improved, see a colorectal specialist or gastroenterologist.
