Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Friend, if the puppy is having a hard time passing stool as you have suspected it sounds like she is constipated. What you can do is increase the water intake by adding some water to her food. In addition, you can offer low sodium chicken broth or milk. If that doesn't work you can give her 2-3 drops of mineral oil directly into her mouth. If she continues to have problems the next step is a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
