Dr. Susan :

Hi, I can help you with your question today.

Dr. Susan :

To help Gracie defecate normally, you can give her 1/2 teaspoon of Miralax (this is an over the counter human laxative) twice daily with her meals.

Dr. Susan :

You should also encourage her to stay well hydrated.

Dr. Susan :

Make sure she has fresh water available at all times. You can also offer her dilute chicken broth or water from a tuna can.
