Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I am sorry that your question was not picked up sooner. There are very few experts on at that time of night when you wrote in.

You can use some metamucil to help move things along , go by directions on the package. Be sure the dog is drinking plenty of water with this or it can form an intestinal obstruction.

You can also begin adding some pure canned pumpkin to the diet if you want to go with food rather than medications. Small dogs a teaspoon, large dogs two tablespoons AM & PM.

If the constipation is from an intestinal blockage from a non food item however you do not want to force bowel movements as this can be dangerous.

If this does not help the pup evacuate the bowels then please do see your Vet.

Information on metamucil http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=26+1303&aid=1473

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Not sure. After being with us for 1 year, 10 months, she has just started "crying" in her sleep.
