Does your dog, cat or guinea pig have trouble with defecating? No bowel movement for several days? Is your pet straining to pass stool? Is the stool very hard? These are signs of constipation.

Dog and cat defecating depends on several factors:

  • Sufficient fibers in the diet
  • Sufficient fluid intake
  • Regular exercise

When will your dog or cat get constipated?

  • It occurs in elderly pets, that do not have optimal digestion anymore.
  • When your pet is normally never constipated it an be a result of changes in the diet. Maybe your pet ate something different than it normally does (white bread instead of brown bread)Maybe there was too little exercise or a lower water intake. Or your pet has eaten a bone. In that case stools are often crumbly, hard, light coloured or even white. Depending on the size of the bone, it can also cause constipation.
  • Once in a while constipation can be the result of an illness or medication.

What can you do? Provide a diet that is rich in fibre. Fibres are necessary to retain fluid. The stools get harder when it does not contain a lot of fluids. Make sure your dog or cat drinks enough, if necessary give it luke warm water. Make sure your pet gets enough exercise.

If all this still isn’t enough, you can "start up" the digestion with Laxating Salt (Minerals) This will effectively relieve constipation. It has no side effects. The bowels of your pet will not get "lazy" from using it.
