what kind of stool softener can i give my dog
Metamucil is okay to use in your dog
The dose is 1 to 4 tsp mixed with food every 12 to 25 hours.
I usually use 1 tsp for small dogs (1-10 lbs) and 4 tsp for very heavy dogs (90-100 lbs)
You can also use some castor oil
approx 8 mL orally once daily
I hope this helps!
I would suggest going to see your vet if the problem of constipation continues, as they can perform enemas and/or prescription laxatives if the problem worsens (and determine what the underlying cause is behind the constipation), as there is often another reason why constipation is present.

what about a laxative. she is a 4yr old 70 lb am staff that has not gone all day. She has tried but besides grunting nothing else happened. she hasn't lost her appitite.
The above are laxative meds and dosages. They are used to loosen the stools.
If she continues, you need to take her to your vet.
But, you can try the above to see if it helps.
I wish you the best.
