Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. I would try mixing 2 teaspoons of Miralax powder in with his food. That is a human over the counter product. It can be used every 12 hours until he has a bowel movement.
A walk can help stimulate gastrointestinal motility.
A few spoonfuls of canned pumpkin is high in fiber and can help move things through.
If he is not eating, you can give him one 50 mg Colace tablet. That is a human over the counter stool softener tablet.
Also increasing fluid intake can help too. Add water or low sodium broth to his food.
Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
