What Is a Good Laxative for a Dog?

Answer

A good laxative is one that will alleviate the pain and help it to pass stool more easily. Laxatives are usually given to dogs when they are constipated. Some of the best laxatives include water, mashed pumpkin, milk of magnesia or even milk. Normally, milk would cause dogs to diarrhoea, but in this case, the milk would help with constipation. You could also feed the dog on oils and foods rich in fibres. Sometimes walking your dog may relive it of its constipation.
