Question: Well my dog is a senior doggy of about 10 years, and has trouble's pooping...and I am taking her to the vet by this thursday. But I would like to know what I could do to help my little chihuahua go #2 so she can be at ease a bit while waiting for the vet appointment. Also, my dog usually loves food time...but she hasn't bothered to eat at all today, and it's starting to really make me worry...anything I could do to get he to munch on some food?

Before you start treating your pet you need to know what exactly the problem is. If your pet is not eating well then I doubt it is just constipated. A 10 year old dog may be having a back problem that is causing her to have difficulty having a bowel movement. A small amount of canned pumpkin (not pie filling) can help with constipation or diarrhea. I would call your vet in the morning and let them know she is not eating well and that Thursday is to long to wait. If they will not move your appointment up call someone else. A small dog like a Chihuahua does not need to go 4 days without eating well. They are small and don't have much reserves. You really need expert advise.

Blue Buffalo is the best cat food it is all natural and extremely healthy. The best tip to know when buying cat food is looking at the Ingredients. The first ingredigent should be Chicken, or Beef, or fish an actual meat. Many first ingredients are a By-Product which is bad. If it says By-Product first that is basically like feeding your cat mcdonalds to a child everyday. And Friskies and Whiskas is like fast food quality for a human being.. instead of fruits and vegetables like Blue Buffalo or Iams. Iams Origional flavor Chicken in an Orange bag is good quality and reasonably afforadavle I buy that for my two catd and Chicken is the first ingredient then a by-product. The Iams and blue buffalo wet food is good to, since cats are prone to dehyadartion wet food here and there is a must. :)

A common cause of constipation especially in middle aged and older dogs is not drinking enough water. When your dog's dehydrated, the colon can overcompensate, resulting in harder feces that are more difficult to pass. Fresh water, exercise, and a bit of fiber in the diet are all important to your dog's digestive health and can help fend off ordinary bouts of constipation.

Canned pumpkin works wonders, but you can also talk to your vet about a dosage of over the counter meds such as metamucil.

most of the time when a dog has a problem like that you should take them outside, whenever my dog has a problem i take him outside so that he can eat some grass, because believe it or not grass can actually help a dog sometimes, and some pumpkin helps to.

Call the vet and tell her/him that the dog has not been eating and to move up your appointment please. I hope this helps...

Here are good brands: Wellness http://www.wellnesspetfood.com/ Chicken Soup http://www.chickensoupforthepetloverssou... Solid Gold http://www.solidgoldhealth.com/ Canidae http://www.canidae.com/ Any Natura Brand http://www.naturapet.com/ Please never use any food from Purina, because they are all crap, and you would never want to feed a pet that you loved the Purina brand. Here is a website partly on Purina: http://www.thedogbowl.com/PPF/category_I... Never use Science Diet, either. That is a very crappy brand. If your dog is ever sick, the vet will recommend Science Diet. Their Rx diets are Ok for some dogs who need them, but don't get the regular Science Diet. Here is a website partly on Science Diet: http://www.thedogbowl.com/PPF/category_I... HOMEMADE/RAW FOOD FOOD IS GOOD: http://www.pet-grub.com/ http://www.barfworld.com I feed the raw diet. It is the best you can feed most dogs. I suggest you look into it. **************************************... Look at all the crap in Purina Dog Chow: Whole grain corn, poultry by-product meal, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), corn gluten meal, meat and bone meal, brewers rice, soybean meal, barley, whole grain wheat, animal digest, calcium carbonate, salt, calcium phosphate, potassium chloride, L-Lysine monohydrochloride, choline chloride, zinc sulfate, Vitamin E supplement, zinc proteinate, ferrous sulfate, added color (Red 40, Yellow 5, Blue 2, Yellow 6), DL-Methionine, manganese sulfate, manganese proteinate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, copper proteinate, garlic oil, pyridoxine hydrochloride, Vitamin B-12 supplement, thiamine mononitrate, Vitamin D-3 supplement, riboflavin supplement, calcium iodate, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), folic acid, biotin, sodium selenite. S-4101 Look at all the good stuff in Wellness: Deboned Chicken, Chicken Meal, Oatmeal, Ground Barley, Ground Brown Rice, Tomato Pomace, Rye Flour, Canola Oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols, a natural source of Vitamin E), Tomatoes, Rice Bran, Deboned Whitefish, Natural Chicken Flavor, Carrots, Spinach, Sweet Potatoes, Apples, Blueberries, Ground Flaxseed, Ground Millet, Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Minerals [Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Proteinate, Copper Sulfate, Manganese Proteinate, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite], Vitamins [Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E Supplement, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin, Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin, Vitamin D-3 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamin B-12 Supplement], Choline Chloride, Taurine, Mixed Tocopherols (a natural preservative), Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Chondroitin Sulfate, Chicory Root Extract, Garlic, Yucca Schidigera Extract, Green Tea Extract, Dried Lactobacillus plantarum, Enterococcus faecium, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation products. **************************************... So you can obviously see that something like Wellness is better than something like Purina Dog Chow. **************************************...
