hello and thank you for using this site to help you. It is possible constipation is the cause and for that you can add some pure canned pumpkin to the daily diet at it acts like a fiber. I would say start with one teaspoon in the AM and one in the PM. You can also give Metamuciland I will put a link below for instructions.

Of course if there are any other symptoms such as vomiting, or lack of appetite you should see your Vet.
