My Dog is Constipated

My West Highland terrier has constipation problems? Does anyone have any advice?

Try giving him those treats that look like smoked sausage in a stick form. There should be a lot of them around at this time of the year. Also, take him on a long walk, that usually loosens things up right quick. Especially in combination. (12/11/2009)

A vet told me once to feed a constipated dog canned pumpkin. Just make sure it is 100% pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling. (12/11/2009)

I don't have a dog, but my cat has that problem. We feed her a vet recommended high fiber diet and once a day I mix a vet prescribed liquid into her food. It is not expensive and works very well. I personally believe pet problems should be solved by vets rather than well meant advice. While we play around with this remedy and that remedy, the pet is suffering. (12/11/2009)

My first concern would be why is he constipated. If there is any possibility that he may have swallowed something that has become lodged in his intestines I would get him in to the vet as soon as possible. They can x-ray to be sure it isn't a foreign body.

You really can't think in terms of people when it comes to dogs. You may be able to live with constipation for a few days where for your dog that could be fatal. Why take the risk? (12/12/2009)

I also use pumpkin. Just start with a tablespoon. It can give them the runs, so easy does it. (12/12/2009)

I use mineral oil. My doggies love the taste and it is natural. Just give 1/2 teaspoon to begin. (12/12/2009)

We had a lab that had this problem and the vet said to give wet food. So I just wet down the dry for about half an hour before feeding. Also you can put the fiber powder in the food and put stool softeners in the food. All of this was advised by our vet. We had to do this for the last 6 years of his life. (12/13/2009)
