Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What puppy food are you feeding and what milk? Does he have free access to any water?
2) Can you describe the constipation?
3) How solid are the stools you're seeing?
4) Is the ear canal clean and clear of foreign bodies?
