you should eat salads ,vegies also sometimes dried prunes are good for when you are constipated. it always helps me to eat these things when i am constipated. also, there is a stool softener called colace you can get it at any cvs or target, walmart. but eat these foods often and you won't be constipated. i hope i could help!!

I know this may sound a little crazy but if your dog is constipated she can eat a little canned pumpkin. it is kinda like a natural laxative. I do not recommend suppositories at all. How ever you can use a stool softener.they usually come in the form of a gel cap. The active ingredient you are looking for is Ducosate Sodium. We use this all the time at the Vet clinic I work at.

okay well when my bum goes outa controll i eat lots of prunes, eat grape juice or cranberry juice, also if nessecary go to the doctor and ask for a sellign shot, it clears out your bowels. anyway also i was wondering if your poo is as hard a a rock, if so just eat some youghurt or soup to thin the poo up! i have had the shot and i have never had constipation yet!! also it helps to pok your finger up and pull the poop out, if you just wear like a diaper it should be fine xx

For constipation, diet and drinking lots of water are key. Are you eating a lot of fiber? That would be all whole, natural foods, vegetables, fruits, whole grains ( grains that you can see with your eyes), ie, oats, barley, brown rice (not white rice) beans, etc. Avoid all white foods, white sugar, white flour, and anything containing them. Avoid packaged, processed, and fast foods. We should have one bowel movement for every meal, so 3 per day. the site below has some great information.

Drink tons of water and prune juice. Also stool softners over the counter should help if taken regularly.us

Karina Originally Answered: How often do you get constipated?
Some things such as narcotics, antidepressants and other medications can cause nearly constant constipation. Some women have constipation every month associated with their period. For some people, "normal" may be going once every 2 or 3 days. Once a day isn't normal for everyone.
