Hello and welcome to Just Answer

You can give her some canned pumpkin or sweet potato, probably about half a can, plus a cup or two of active culture yogurt. This should help, plus plenty of water. Pumpkin has lots of fiber and will draw moisture into the guts and help things along.

I hope this helps
