Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

Does she have hard stool?


Straining to defecate often?

Yes to all. Now only brown liquid. Even though young and female, problems since we got her. This time I am afraid.
Hi there,

Over the counter - you can purchase Miralax, starting with 1/8 tsp on the food every 12 hours.

This can be increased as needed.

Lactulose and Kristalose are pescription options (liquid and crystals respectively) but miralax can be purchased over the counter - no prescription needed.
