There are glycerine suppositories you can use on small children. It is possible they could help a puppy. There is also a glycerine enema called a BaBY LAX. These are very safe, non-drug items. They both just dissolve in the rectum from the body heat and lubricate and soften the stool.

You can also try Laxatone. This is a petroleum based product you can find at the vet. Pet shops also sell something similiar for furballs in cats. It is quite safe. You should also determine why she is constipated. What kind of food is the puppy eating? Is it drinking plenty of water? How long has the pup been constipated?

Dogs love high fiber foods like fruit and broccoli. Ask your vet if you can add these things to her diet.

Try canned, pureed pumpkin (not the pie stuff, the vegetable), about 1/2 to 1 tsp should help.

You need to check for worms also. My vet told me that puppies having worms can cause constipation.

Call the vet, this can be life threatening! Even if you try the tips here, please make sure you let the vet know what you're doing. Six weeks!

Please take your puppy to the vet. He is too young to try remedies without the vets okay. He will be able to tell you the best puppy food to put him on and how to do it (you can't change their diet all at once, it has to be done gradually) so that he doesn't have this problem.

Good luck with your new companion!

Get the puppy to a vet ASAP. This is potentially life-threatening...do NOT try to treat it yourself.

PLEASE take your puppy to the vet! She should still be with her mom until she is at least 8 weeks old. Please take her to the vet, as this could be life threating.

After you get the puppy checked out at the vets and the dog is back to going at regular intervals try rubbing the belly softly after the puppy eats. That is why the mom dog licks the puppies and mom cats lick kittens to stimulate the bowel movements.

Try a little Paraffin Oil in the food. We can buy it at the supermarket here in Australia. Good luck !

I agree with the vet approach. Young animals can get dangerously sick very quickly.

Canned Pumpkin 1 to 2 teaspoons and make sure
it is plain. Not the pie pumpkin.

Things like this always happen on a weekend. In my case Thanksgiving weekend!
