It sounds like worms. Was he outside recently? You can bring in a 'fresh' stool sample to the vet so that they can test it for roundworms. It's easy and pretty cheap to treat.

yep....definately sounds like worms. Take a stool sample to the vet. It's usually only like $15 for the test and $10-15 for meds.
