Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear your pug is having hard stools. Is there any blood in the stool? Is he eating?You can try stool softeners such as Mira Lax (1/4th to 1/2 teaspoon twice daily). You can also try a small dose of mineral oil (1/2 teaspoon).If he is really constipated, he may need an enema but you can't give an enema made for people, not even one for an infant. They are not safe in dogs. Your veterinarian will have a enema that is safe for a puppy so if the mineral oil and Mira Lax do not work I would take him to your vet.Please let me know how he is doing and what other questions you have. If you are seeing blood, or if he is not eating, you might want to have your vet check him out as soon as possible.
How is Duke doing? I have not heard back from you. Please let me know if my answer was helpful and if I can help with anything else.
