Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Okay I know it seems most people tend to have issues with the other end of the poop spectrum, but Mishka's x-rays this morning showed he is very backed up.

I feed him BBW puppy still (will be transitioning to something else soon) with some treats and such in between. He also gets 1tsp of cocunut oil and 1tsp of ACV once a day with his meals.

Is there anything to give them to soften them up so it's easier to pass? He goes 3 times a day usually but earlier when he went he just released a few firmer pieces. And he still has enough poop in him to last for another day or so.

He's getting neutered tomorrow and I don't want him to be all full up and end up with it worse after anesthesia.

Any help is appreciated.

I have read here in the past that canned pure pumpkin (NOT pie filling) can help with constipation. You might try some of that in his food. It can also be used to help firm up loose stool. It's supposed to be good for both.

Hmm. I've seen people say that for diarrhea, I didn't know it worked the same for constipation. I'll have to see if I can get that at the grocery store. Thank you!

I was pretty surprised too, but it makes sense. It's added fiber. In our stores here I find it in the organic section. Hope it works and good luck with his neuter tomorrow Smile

I second the pumpkin! It helps a lot for constipation with dogs. I know my parents dog used to have constipation as a puppy and pure pumpkin solved the problem immediately.

I gave him 2 large tablespoons of pumpkin. I guess I will see! I can't feed him anything else now so hopefully that helps move things along.

Everyone here says to give pumpkin for loose stools, but that too MUCH pumpkin can cause the opposite effect. So I'd say you're on the right track! Good luck!
