I'm asking this question re: my mom's pup, a 5-month old Havanese pup. She has pretty much been constipated on whatever food she's been on. When my mom got her, she didn't want a grain-free food (which is what I feed Kodee along w/raw), so I got Wellness Puppy food. She got very constipated on this (after she had finished the food the breeder sent home with her). She put her back on the food from the breeder, once she found out what is was (Nutrasource Puppy food), and it got better, but she still has fairly hard stools. I don't think my mom is real comfortable w/giving her canned pumpkin, which I suggested at one time.
Can anyone think of what could be causing the constipation? Is it more than likely her diet, or could it be something else? The pup eats and drinks fine, plays all the time, and has had a fecal done. Can't see any health issues with her, other than the constipation...
And before anyone suggests it, I can't see convincing my mom to do raw or grain-free...her vet keeps pushing Science Diet, which my mom refuses to feed her dog (yay, Mom!)
