Constipation


Recommended Posts

Aside from the trusty, old canned pumpkin, what is safe to give a constipated greyhound?

You want to add more moisture to her intestines, so canned food (if she isn’t already on canned) or a stool softener like Colace. Be sure to check the ingredients to make sure there is no Xylitol or such. I believe Miralax is safe for dogs as well, but check with your vet. It is fine for cats, and they are usually more sensitive to stuff than dogs.

Gotcha.  I’ve got Colace on hand.  Poor Jenny seems desperate to poo since about 1 am.  Thanks!
