Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. I would recommend starting him on Miralax 1/2 tablespoon on his food every 12 hours to help with the constipation. I would also start him on 1 tablespoon of coconut oil on his food as well to help with this. As far as the stool you can see, the best thing you can do at home would be to bathe his hind end using warm soapy water to help massage the area to help him pass what is close to coming out. If he doesn't go to the bathroom within 24 hours, I would take him in to the vet for an enema. If he seems very uncomfortable, I would take him in before then if possible.
