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.

What part of being constipated, can barely walk, can't jump etc., makes your mother think the dog is doing well? I'll bet if she was constipated and could barely walk she would take herself to a doctor. It's against the law to withold vet treatment from a sick dog and she can be charged. The fine will cost her a lot more than a vet visit and as a bonus she'll have a conviction for animal cruelty recorded against her name. If she thinks this is a load of codswallop tell her to check the law out herself. I feel so sorry for kids who have parents who refuse to pay for a vet visit for their sick dogs. These poor kids are beside themselves with worry about their animals and they can't do a thing about it. When a parent agrees to own an animal they are obligated to care for it properly. Let your mother see you are serious about getting this dog to a vet. Call a low cost shelter or human society and explain the situation. They may be able to suggest something for you. Let your mother hear you making the calls. It might shame her into doing the right thing. Is there anyone else in your family you can ask for help? An auntie or an other adult family member?

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.

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!!
