Hi, I used to visit these forums years ago but haven’t been around for a while. I’m hoping you might be able to give me some advice about which food to try for my 8yo bichon, Oscar. At the moment he’s been eating mainly Wainwrights trays, with a bit of Applaws kibble because putting that in his treat ball and letting him chase it around is fun for him. His weight is fine and I thought he was digesting his food fine (as he was pooing regularly and seemed healthy and happy), but a week ago he became quite unwell, was refusing food and was vomiting, and didn’t do a poo for several days. Obviously I took him to the vet, where they felt his tummy and did x-rays which showed he was very constipated. Laxatives didn’t work and, long story short, in the end he needed to have a general anaesthetic and have the poo manually removed. It’s possible he ate something unusual that could have caused the constipation when he was out of our sight the previous weekend when off the lead in the local forest, but the vet couldn’t identify anything specific, so I’m concerned it could be his diet. The vet I saw for his checkup this morning suggested Chappie when I asked what food he would recommend, but I’ve heard less than great things about the quality of Chappie as a long term diet, so I wondered if anybody had any other suggestions for foods that are especially good for dogs that are prone to constipation. Price wise we need to stay roughly in the same ballpark as the Wainwrights, but there’s a little wiggle room. Edited to add: Alternatively, I’d also welcome suggestions for any kind of supplement etc. to add to his current diet that could help.
