Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

Yes, constipation can cause Tyson's anus to become red and swollen if he is straining. Try giving Tyson a dose of laxatone every 4 hrs to help ease this discomfort. This can be purchased at the pet store and works very well to help Tyson past this.

Does that make sense to you?
