3yrs old, female, 20 pounds, no she's not trying to go and there are no other symptoms. She ate all her dinner

you think she's ok?

She'll probably go tomorrow..

Friend, the fact that she has not defecated today is not an emergency, she may be constipated. This is what you can try:

1- Get her to drink more by offering low sodium chicken broth.

2- Add 2-3 teaspoon of canned pumpkin to his food.

3- As a stool softener, you can give a 1/2 teaspoon of Miralax every 12-24 hours or Mineral oil 2 to 3 teaspoon every 12 hours. You can find these over the counter in any pharmacy.

4- You can also give milk as a stool softener; normally it causes diarrhea but in cases of constipation will act as a stool softener.

5- If she does not have a bowel movement within 12 hours of doing the above I would have her checked by a veterinarian for a hands-on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
