Hi, JACustomer.To loosen her bowels, you can give her 1tsp per 10# ***** body weight of mineral oil in food per day. At 45#, she can receive 4.5 tsp per day. This should soften her stool enough for the firm stool to pass. You may also want to put her on a higher fiber diet. You can add canned pumpkin (not pie filler) to her food, too. You should see improvements within 24 hours after starting this regimen although it can take a few days to pass.If you see diarrhea begin, make sure to stop the mineral oil but you can continue the pumpkin.
