I live in 100 degree + temperatures. My normal active 4 yr old shih tzu is not able because of the heat to go for our usual 6 block 2x a day walk, because the heat burns his paws. therefore walk are short and done at 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. He is being very difficult in drinking water, refusing to do so, except for small drinks several times a day. He also appears to be constipated, straining to poop and then its small and dark (not black or sticky). He gets fresh cooked chicken, fresh veggies, peas, carrots, pumpkin (a t spoonfull, 2x a day, plus a 1/2 t of coconut oil mixed with his science diet small breed lamb and barley dry dog food(approx 1/2 c) 2x a day. He eats most of it and if not finished I remove and discard. He is sleeping a lot more than usual, but will play tug of war or chase the toy with me every day several times a day. What can I do to help his constipation, and get him to drink more water?

My dog is a pembroke corgi. We went for a long vigorous walk. When I got home I gave her a bath and she was fine. She was on the couch and fell off, she jumped to the edge and just fell. After she started limping pretty bad. She is 4 years old and in good health. She lets me touch the foot and everything but when she is laying back I moved her paw back and she whimpered. I don't know what to do. I have been icing it. Every time if i push she paw back towards her she whimpers. It is her front left
