Medic for Constipation in Dogs

7. Bran (wheat and oat)

oat bran

Bran works as a preventive measure when added to your dog’s food regularly. Being high in fiber content, it works as an effective laxative to keep things moving and support easy elimination.

Add ½ to 2 teaspoons of bran to your dog’s regular food, depending upon the size of your dog. It is recommended to add bran to wet food because it absorbs a lot of water.


When a dog eats bran, it makes him drink more water, which is good for relieving constipation.


8. Figs


Figs are also good for treating constipation in humans as well as dogs. They are rich in fiber and also add potassium to the diet.

  1. Soak a couple of dried figs in water overnight.
  2. The next morning, grind them into a paste.
  3. Give a small amount of this paste to your dog once or twice daily for a few days.

Note: Do not give figs to your dog in excess as it may cause diarrhea.
