Q: Q: I'm worried that my dog may be constipated. What should I do?

 

Constipation is defined as the passing of very dry, overly firm (sometimes crumbly) stools, and the animal will usually strain to pass them. This differs from obstipation (inability to pass stools altogether) and tenesmus (attempting to pass stools following a bout of diarrhoea when the bowel is empty). Please read our Constipation fact sheet for more information.
