How long has your dog been constipated? Any vomiting? Still eating all right?
Hi . He has been constipated for 2 days
You can use colace in dogs. I would recommend 100mg twice daily.
he is eating. he was neutered 4 days ago and is on tramadol for pain 125mg q 6hrs
He may be constipated from the tramadol, and that is a very high dosage. You may want to cut him back to 50mg every 8-12 hours. He will still be comfortable and it may help resolve the constipation
ok but for now can i go ahead and give him the colace?
Yes. You can also try a little canned pumpkin, 1/4 c twice daily.
That may also help get things moving
ok great thanks .
I hope that helps
yes thank you. bye
