About three days ago, my dog got into the some chicken bones, which he's done before, and each time he gets constipated, but this time he hasn't made stool for awhile.
I know Im not supposed to use human medicine on him, and I wan't to know what to do to help him. Please! he looks so miserable.
Chicken bones can cause tears in their systems… this could be life-threatening. You could try some cod liver oil – a small amount – don't give an adult dose – check the weight and dose accordingly. However, chicken bones shouldn't make him constipated if they are processing through his system. You may have a serious problem.
Sounds like the food is too dry also… some canned food may help with this – a little canned food with the dry and some water. You didn't say the dog was eating and drinking… and peeing… If he has stopped these things – get him to the vet immediately. Otherwise, try some canned food to get things moving.
Hope this helps.
Adding canned pumpkin to your dog’s meal might produce a successful movement – ask your vet about this solution.
conventional laxatives are often prescribed. Giving your pet a mild laxative, if advised by your vet, can solve the problem. However, keep in mind that smaller dogs are likely to require smaller amounts than larger dogs – make sure you get the correct dosage from a professional. Enemas are also performed, however it is not pleasant and may be stressful for your pet. If a blockage is suspected, x-rays may be needed.
There are many natural and holistic treatments that can help with constipation and promote easier digestion for your animal, without the side effects commonly associated with veterinary prescribed drugs. Treatments such as herbal and homeopathic remedies can restore balance and regularity to the digestive system and bowel. Psyllium nigrum husk and Avena sativa (Oats) are very high sources of dietary fiber and has been used for centuries to promote regular bowel movements.
Aloe Ferox is known for its beneficial effect on digestive functioning and acts as a natural system cleanser while Natrium Muriaticum helps to maintain the body’s water balance and is an essential component of all living cells helping to ease constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, indigestion and bloating. Remember to source your natural remedies from reputable companies to ensure maximum effectiveness and safety.

pumpkin pie filling (from a jar)
just regular pumpkin from the can will do the trick. Could make the stool a little soft but its ok, and it will not hurt him at all. Just take him out about every 15 min until he stops going. If he does not go, there is a problem and you need to get him to a vet.
Also bones are a big no no for dogs. Make sure he's eating and drinking well.
Also try feeding him half wet half dry food from now on. it should help.
NO HUMAN MEDS PLEASE!!!
hope this helps! =]
You need to get him to a vet NOW! There is a chance a chicken bone could have punctured his intestines and is blocking waste from getting through. You never ever ever let a dog get into chicken bones and the reason I just gave you is only one of a few different things that can happen. I swear some people just don't think.
These treatment options are for simple constipation only. If the problem lasts for more than five days, or if the stool contains large amounts or mucous or blood, consult with your veterinarian before beginning any treatment.
– Use a stool softener
– Change her diet
Call your vet in the morning. He/she will tell you what, and how much. to give your dog. Please dispose of bones properly. Cooked chicken bones will kill your dog. May that is the problem now, and not just constipation. I sure hope not.
If you think he's in trouble now he'll really be in trouble if you give him some "human medicine"! Being constipated is not an emergency so you and your dog are just gonna have to wait it out!
Do not give him human medicine. Get him to an Emergency Vet. If he has a blockage due to eating cooked bones, it could mean life or death.
pepto bizmo if you go to vet hospital they give the dog pinl liquid but they don't tell you its pepto bizmo mo .
hope this helps
Go get some cat lax or feed him can dog food that will loosen it up if it is not a tear.
