Customer Question

Hi. My ***** ***** Terrier is experiencing constipation, straining with bowel movements, as a result I believe of taking Tramadol daily for pain for the past 2 months or so. My vet's office is closed now and I was wondering if there is anything to alleviate this. He is not in any significant distress. We were on vacation last week and noticed when walking him the past couple of days, he is straining and small stool. Thanks.
