    Bella (13 wks old) keeps on getting a little constipated.
    She has 3 meals per day of Burns kibble (100g per day as instructed on packet) but seems to be straining to go to the loo. I give it to her dry, would it help to soak it first? She has always had this food so her diet hasn't changed.
    Any ideas?:confused:

    Might be worth soaking it, just to see if it helps.

    Do you notice if she drinks regularily?

    my dog has the reverse problem! he sometimes gets the squits so now i mix some probiotic goats yogurt into his food as it is good for the digestive system and is much better for dogs than yogurt made from cows milk and its really helped with his stools and has a really good chance of making your dog more "regular" :)
