Ok thank u

Friend, if her stool was loose she is not constipated. The straining to defecate is likely secondary to inflammation in the large intestines (colon); in a puppy, this can be caused by parasites, an infection, ingestion of a foreign body, diet, etc. to name a few causes.

In this case, I would recommend a hands-on examination with your family veterinarian and a fecal analysis as an initial screening test. In the meantime, change her diet to rice with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef. Once the stool is back to normal wean her into her puppy food over a period of 1-2 weeks. Do not give Pepto Bismol of Imodium.

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 it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!

Ok but for tonight, since she normally eats dry food, will a can of puppy food possibly help?

I would give her a bland diet of rice with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
You mean rice and chicken as in people food? Or dog food?

Yes, people food; regular rice with chicken or ground beef.
