I am sorry you are worried about your puppy. How old is he?

My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

It is unusual to see constipation in puppies. Is he straining to defecate? Is he eating? Any vomiting? If he is straining, it is more likely colitis, inflammation of the colon lining, than constipation.
