Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I can make some recommendations for the constipation. I would start with giving her Miralax, 1 tsp twice a day. This laxative usually really helps. I would also mix in 1 tsp of canned pumpkin into her food to help her go a well. You can even offer her a little Pedialyte throughout the day to keep her well hydrated which will also help. You can also give her some canned food to increase her water intake.
