I am hoping to get some advice to help Dillon with chronic constipation. He has had this for a while, but usually with half tsp physillium husks and half tsp liquid paraffin he does a little poo (2 or 3 bumbles) every 2nd day. Since he has been in the vets he did not poo for 5 days (but he hadnt eaten much) on the fifth day, he did two small bumbles then was up on his haunches (which is difficult for him due to his skinny weak legs) wailing for half an hr trying to do more (the tests did show he had irritable bowel as well). Now it has been two more days and today he was up on his haunches trying to go again but again nothing. He has been eating the last 3 days, I have added half tsp physillium husks yesterday and today a teasp pumpkin, but still nothing. Any advice. Should I add more physillium husk or pumpkin, I dont want to give him tummy ache, but he is not pooing? Thanks, Chris.
