Constipation In Dogs

Constipation In Dogs


99% of pet owners are familiar with their dog’s bathroom habit. Sometimes, constipation can be mild and treats itself. Other times constipation could be serious and related to other underlying diseases.

Why Does It Happen?

If you suspect your pet is sick, call your vet immediately. For health-related questions, always consult your veterinarian, as they have examined your pet, know the pet’s health history, and can make the best recommendations for your pet.


  • Too Or More Days Without Pooping
  • Straining To Urinate
  • Pain, Such As Crying While Trying To Defecate
  • Blood In The Stool
  • Any Worsening Signs Of Illness, Such As Vomiting


  • Dehydration
  • FBO (Foreign Body Obstruction)
  • Tumours
  • Matted Hair Covering Anus


Your vet is always the first place to check with before giving your dog medication.

In cases of mild constipation, there are a few ‘home-remedies’.

  • Hydrate
  • Extra Walks
  • Skip the enema. Do not attempt to give your dog an enema at home unless instructed to do so by your veterinarian.

In case the dog is not better in 2 days, see your vet immediately.

If the dog’s condition worsens, take the dog to the vet immediately. Make sure not to give the dog any medication with approval from your vet. For health-related questions contact your vet.

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but
    I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously
    appreciated! 0mniartist asmr

    May I just say what a comfort to discover someone that truly
    understands what they are discussing on the
    internet. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should check this out and understand
    this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular
    since you most certainly possess the gift. asmr 0mniartist

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really one thing that I think I might by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me.
    I’m having a look ahead in your subsequent publish, I’ll try
    to get the cling of it! 0mniartist asmr
