What's good to give to my little chihuahua if she's constipated? Cont

She likes broccoli, carrots, ect, will this work?
Chef-Ratatouille:

Yes for a dog, if you give carrot and broccoli to a carnivore, why I cannot cure his constipation with an effective laxative ??

Mustluvpitbulls:

I would start exercising her more, as this will speed up digestion and make her more likely to have to go, plus it will also make her drink more water, which also aides in the relief of constipation. Canned Pumpkin also has a lot of fiber in it and is safe for dogs to eat. Of course, if this situation does not resolve, take her to a vet.

Asher:

Thank you very much I appreciate the answer, and yes if she's not better, I will take her to the vet! I tried to get her to walk and she would only go a little ways and wanted to come right back home,

Auto Impaired:

If she's not wanting to go for a walk, her problem is more than just constipation. Get her to a vet, sounds like she's a sick puppy.

Tabby:

Normally dogs don't get constipated. Be careful may be a blockage and requires a Vet visit.

Asher:

She seems fine, I watch what she eats, and feed her only Science Diet dog food! Thanks.But if she get worse will do that!

......,....,:

hi june bug.....i think you need to take your dog to the vet ..how long has your dog been this way? if the dog has a blockage you do not need a laxative ..if your dogs feces is to hard then your taking a chance of your dog tearing its rectal walls ...god bless you june bug http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_do_I_do_about_my_dog_being_constipated

Asher:

it just started today so will give it a little while, if necessary will definitely take her to the doctor, she's very important to me, I love her. Thank you grammaw. Also will check the link you left!

Miloslav:

Anything with fiber.

Asher:

So the Carrots and broccoli is alright?

Miloslav:

Probably.

Sunni:

I'd say a big YES!

Batch:

Carrots, green beans, spinach, etc. mixed in her regular food would be great. However, broccoli and the likes may be too gassy for her right now, with her problem, and could give her a stomach ache or add to the one she may already have, but great idea in the future.

Chef-Ratatouille:

Castor oil.

Asher:

For a dog?? Thanks!

Batch:

Caster oil would be way too harsh. It would probably make her very sick.

Chef-Ratatouille:

@Cissy
No more than" Diet dog food", Its with this can of food we made Mad cow. The dog, even the Chihuahua is a carnivore, Carrots and Broccoli is diet for Rabbits, the best way to cure constipation is laxative.

Batch:

Re: Caster oil. You could very well be correct, but given the fact that she is not feeling well right now, her being so small, caster oil being so harsh, not knowing her age and without the advice of a vet....................I just don't think I would do that Again this is just my opinion.

Chef-Ratatouille:

@Cissy
I respect your opinion

Nice talking to you anyway

Batch:

Something like a little flax seed oil on her food each day. That's what I give my girls

Asher:

Thanks Cissy, where would I buy it? I need it right now, or as soon as possible!

Batch:

I get it at the health food store. It seems to help prevent constipation, feeding it to them on a regular basis. Also, I would like to share this with you; type in on search web, "Flax seed oil and cottage cheese". We all do this 2 to 3 times a week. A natural cholesterol free oil may help until you can get something more healthy. Also, she will probably love the flax oil and it would be so good for her.
Hope she's feeling better soon!
