Question: im eating plenty of fiber and drinking plenty of fluids, yet i still am constipated and have an anal fissure. i even moved on to supplementary fibres like Citrucel that promises to lower gasiness associated with fiber intake, but, whenever i go to the bathroom, it still only push out a small amount of stool, and what i do push it is soft and very little. i don't want to make my fissure worse so i try not to strain the rectal area, but i also can't keep it in, stay constipated, and perpetuate the fissure any further. i'm in a lose lose situation and i don't know what to do. is there something im doing wrong? do i need to take even more fibre? i'm not bleeding or anything, and when I wipe, there is no blood on the toilet paper or in the bowl. i don't know what to do, and it's really upsetting me.

Take a spoon of milk of magnesia in half a glass of water and try to lean forward from the hips and relax when you are on the toilet, getting tensed up and pushing is only going to make things worse.

She is probably just constipated. This can happen if they have had a lot of fiber in their diet and not enough water among other reasons but these are most common. I have the same problem with my dog from time to time. Usually a little bit of milk gets things softened up and going. Hope this helps.

Most dogs will be constipated at some time or another in their lives, and it's usually nothing to worry about. Simply put, constipation is an inability to empty the bowels by normal means. If your dog seems to be straining yet cannot pass a stool, or if the stool is exceptionally hard, he's probably constipated. Usually the body can work the problem out by itself, but if the constipation lasts more than a few days, you should consult your veterinarian.

Drink a half gallon of apple juice today and the rest of the apple juice tomorrow. This will always do the trick.

"Fluids"? You need to be drinking water. Soda, coffee, and even tea can cause constipation. Drink tons of water and take stool softeners.

could have whats called fecal impaction, make sure that your diet is high in fiber and water. Also make sure to eat low fat foods as that can make it harder to pass your bowl movements. Also when you do have a bowel movement , i know this may sound gross but look at it to make sure there is no blood, or foul odor or that it looks off color. If its any of the 3 it could be some type of condition. I would also be very careful when taking a laxative because they can be harmful to your intestinal system I would recommend getting gentle laxative, also try prune juice i know it might sound nasty but it helps to soften the stools. Also it could be medications that you are taking , if you are taking any
