Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
A small change in her diet should help with these changes. As long as she's eating and drinking well, she should eventually be able to move the stool normally too. I would recommend adding 1 heaping tbsp/20# ***** pure canned pumpkin at each meal. This should help to get her defecating and regulate her stool. Use this method as long as needed, it won't harm her one bit if she likes the pumpkin and you wish to continue to use it in the future. You may, however, see orange stool from the fiber content.

If it was mostly liquid, she's likely cramping due to diarrhea and not because she's constipated. The fiber will help to regulate the consistency of the stool. If you do not have access to pumpkin, use a bland diet instead. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. To avoid more nausea, start with small amounts to begin with and offer the amount every 2-4 hours. A few teaspoons to start is typically sufficient and you can work your way up every 2-4 hours in incremental increases until you’re sure no vomiting will be seen. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel.
