Eat more fiber, drink more water.
A diet with enough fiber (20 to 35 grams each day) helps the body form soft, bulky stool. A doctor or dietitian can help plan an appropriate diet. High-fiber foods include beans, whole grains and bran cereals, fresh fruits, and vegetables such as asparagus, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and carrots. For people prone to constipation, limiting foods that have little or no fiber, such as ice cream, cheese, meat, and processed foods, is also important.
Try fiber sure its a powder you into your food that gives you fiber you need fiber in your diet. You dont know your constipated in just a few hours but if you continue to feel this way right now try senekot its a natural laxitive and doesnt cause cramping like most others. If you always feel this way it could be more serious and you should see a dr.
A proven system to avoid constipation is to have plenty of fibrous foods & consume a lot of water. There are plenty of tablets available for immediate recession of the problem but they r purely on s.o.s basis.
your diet obviously isnt good enough.. i guess u need more fibre in it.. like more fruits and green veggies.. and yeah why dont u try a warm glass of milk before u go to bed tonite... im sure that'll help a lil if not much...good luck !
Originally Answered: Is my dog constipated.or is it something else?
Is she drinking enough water? Whenever the body starts to get depleted of fluids, it starts trying to conserve it and will, thus, send less of it into the intestines to mix with the feces and make it soft. If she isnt drinking much, try giving her low-sodium broth (chicken or beef). If she'll drink that, it will be sufficient enough water for now. Also, as someone already suggested, give her a couple tablespoons of mineral oil by mouth (good luck!) and, if you have an eye dropper, GENTLY give her an eye dropper full of mineral oil up her rear end. The "skin tenting test", where you pinch the skin on her shoulders to see if it springs back, is NOT an accurate (or even near-accurate) way to test for dehydration. Only blood work can verify that. By the time the skin no longer springs back, the dog is severely dehydrated. As for the pumpkin, keep trying it but if it isnt working, go to plan B. Try the mineral oil. Do not give her any bowel stimulants. Since she's already trying to pass bricks, stimulating her bowels to do it faster will only make it worse. Stool softeners only!!
