Constipation

constipated dog

My Dog is Constipated!

Constipation in dogs is absent, infrequent, or difficult defecation. Most healthy dogs have one or two stools a day depending on the dog and the diet. Dogs suffering from constipation may not defecate for 3 days or more which leads to the feces retention in the colon where they can become dry and hard and require forceful straining to pass.

A dog that is constipated may suffer from other serious health problems, like leaky gut, if the condition is recurring or persists for long.

Causes of Constipation

  • 1. Aging
  • 2. Lack of Water (hydration)
  • 3. Blockages, or ingresting of indigestible materials
  • 4. Prescription medications

Signs of Constipation

To recognize dog constipation, look for your dog straining to defecate, or infrequent defecation. You may also notice dry or hard stools.

How to Help

  • 1. Provide Water
  • 2. Eliminate indigestible materials
    By giving your dog chews or natural biscuits to chew on, you reduce the likelihood of them chewing or ingesting something harmful.
  • 3. Increase opportunities to eliminate
    Make sure your dog has access to an area for elimination. Holding stools perpetuates a constipated dog.
  • 4. Supplement
    Provide digestive support with enzymes and probiotics. Probiotics naturally soften the stools by drawing water into the colon.
  • 5. Change Diet
    Switching to a raw, grain free diet is always best for dogs and eliminates ingredients that create problems for your dog's digestive system.

It is distressing to find that your dog is constipated, however, this is an easily treated problem. If you find that your dog has chronic constipation, be sure to consult with your vet to be sure there is not a serious blockage in your dog's colon.

Natural Supplements for Constipated Dogs

Give 2-3x the recommended dosage of Probiotics for at least 1 week or until your dog's eliminations are more regular, then resume normal dosage as a wellness program.

Switch to Nusentia's® Raw & Grain Free Dog Food. The dog digestive system is not equipped to digest the complex proteins in grain, so the result can be recurring health problems and constipation. Eliminating grains by using Nusentia's Raw & Grain Free™ ensures that your dog gets whole, high-quality nutrition with less waste and toxin build-up from poor digestion.
