How often do you feed him?
Mine only goes every 2 weeks or so because he gets fed every 15 days ish, so he goes a few days after feeding.
A few warm baths usually do the trick though

He's 3 and eats once a week and usually poo's once a week.

We are going to knock his mouse down to once every 2 weeks cos he weighs 800g +

Will try and bath him again later
