dog constipation? Can't Post

does a dog or puppy ever suffer from constipation? i'm so curious as my puppy didn't do her 'big business' in the house for 3 days, FYI, my puppy is toilet trained.. when i bring her out on the morning of forth day, she finished her 'job' outside the house. is she suffering from any sickness? she eat her meal on time and got plenty of playtime.

Hi,

dogs and puppies do suffer from constipation. My vet gave me laxatives for cats (they work on small dogs too). The stool was a bit watery but it did the job.

You can try to ask mr.khoo/mrs.khoo ( the webmaster), maybe they can help. Last time mrs khoo told me before one of their pup also got constipation...

Constipation/Digestive Problems

From time to time a dog will have constipation problems. It is extremely important to get the intestines and colon to moving quickly in order for this system to not shut down thus causing further complications. No, your dog does not need an operation to remove a blockage.

We have an herbal liquid tincture remedy called Constipation Remedy that causes the intestinal walls to gently heave and ho dislodging the blockage. At this crisis time, your dog will need more fiber in its food to now pull this blockage through and out of the body. This fibrous food supplement is called Digestive/Bowel Aide. You would add this powdered supplement to your dog's daily food along with a beef or chicken or pork gravy mixture to make it more palatable to your dog.

Once you have the blockage moved through, it is very important to continue adding the fibrous supplement to your dog's daily diet in order for the intestines and bowel to heal properly and prevent this distressful situation from happening again.

Dogs who are fed a raw meat diet exclusively and older dogs are especially prone to complications of the digestive system because of the lack of fiber in their diet. Supplementing a teaspoon of Digestive/Bowel Aide to your dog's daily diet can make a world of difference in its ability to enjoy life. We saw this in our elderly dog as it promoted his mental well being and his dignity in being able to move his bowels without complications on a regular daily basis.

   how about try natural herbs:

Constipation - platain, senna, turmeric

Not sure where you can get the herbs, perhaps from pharmacy or chinese herb shop... But I'm sure you can get one and mix with her food...

it's good to give 1-2ml of lactulose (laxative) for your puppy if there is a constipation again. it should do the trick!

Re: [captain03] dog constipation? [In reply to] Can't Post

It is all depends on food and how the dog takes it..I had told a dog will not shit in the owner compound until the owner take him out for a walk... I also was told that the owner's dogs are shitting everywhere.... Heheheh should I use poo poo... Mine is the second one... I was wondering why too.. If my dogs eat dry food they poo more but eat rice poo less... Wonder why... But all depends as I said was told different stories.. Sorry cannot be any help to you... Fiona
