You can give a constipated Dachshund the following:

  • Pumpkin
  • Wet canned dog food
  • Fiber supplements for dogs
  • Olive oil
  • Pet laxatives

Before giving anything to your dog you should speak with a vet. They will most likely answer your question when you call the office. They may ask how long the condition has persisted and how often it happens.

If this is the first time your dog has had this problem; chances are they will tell you what you can buy at the pet store for a pet laxative. You may even go to the pet store to find something that will help. There are definitely dog laxatives that you can give them to help with constipation.

The other options that are mentioned above are natural remedies to the problem. They may take a little longer to work depending on the severity of the problem. You also have to get the dog to go for these other options for helping with constipation.

Your best bet will be to give them wet canned dog food to help with constipation as a natural remedy. It can take a few hours or even a day to help the dog. You should not be worried if it takes a while and do not over medicate your pet. Instead, give them a bit and see how it works after 24 hours. They have to have time to digest the food you have fed them.

In some ways dogs are like humans when it comes to constipation. You know that it takes time in humans so give that time to your dog. You do not want to create the exact opposite problem. If the problem persists definitely speak with a vet to see if there are things you can do to improve your dog's health such as add more fiber to their diet.
