Dog Constipation

This can be a minor or major problem.  It can be from dehydration (lack of water—especially if it is hot or your dog is very active), or dietary (needs more fiber) which can be addressed by adding a couple of tablespoons of non-spiced canned pumpkin to their food.  Leaving your dog out more frequently and getting your pet more exercise can also help.

If this does not work within a few days, then you should check with your vet as there are more serious conditions that can cause constipation including: medication, eating something that has caused an obstruction in the digestive tract, enlarged prostrate, hernias, kidney disease and a few other conditions.
