Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I'm sorry you're going through this with your dog. If he is getting constipated, you can give him 1/4 of a tablespoon of Miralax every 12 hours on his food to help him go. You can also give Pepcid (0.25 mg/lb) every 12 hours for the next few days. It is an antacid that can help with his inappetence. I would feed boiled chicken and white rice for the next few days. It is a bland diet that can help when they are having GI upset from the constipation. You can also syringe feed some Pedialyte to help with hydration. You can also give some canned food or chicken baby food to help with appetite if the chicken and rice isn't appetizing. Let me know if you have any other questions.

If you have a moment to fill out a positive review (by clicking on the **stars** at the top of the page) for me I would greatly appreciate it. This is the only way the website can credit me for my time. Thank you so much and good luck!
