I think my puppy is constipated. training is going well and he is doing his business outside, but he is straining so hard? and then he only manages to push one out?

what can I do? my friend says give him veggies but idk if I should because all the articles on the internet tell me to call the vet before making changes to his diet.

I'm so so so so so sorry for asking so many questions and making so many threads, ahhh I'm just so paranoid! this is my first dog

also could this have something to do with him eating tiny kibble sized rocks? because he already ate before I could stop him.

Call your vet
no worries, I think it's just that he's dehydrated :) gave him some water and he "did it" easily heh :p sorry for bothering you people all the time in these useless threads that I answer myself.

#paranoiddogparent haha

but still, I'm so very sorry for wasting all of ya'lls time.

Pumpkin works. We also will give the dogs a little "pupachino" from Starbucks, which is basically a bit of whipped cream. It seems to help them go too.

No need to think that way. Other people's experiences can be a great tool as we all work through the ups and downs of having a dog as our companion. Getting input from others certainly helps one narrow down their research and hopefully find proper solutions.

Ask all the questions you come up with! Asking questions is the best way to learn, and no need to feel bad about it. I just wish that DogForum was around back when I had my first dog, it would have spared me from making a lot of mistakes.

One tip, research the answers we give, and for medical issues double check with your vet when in doubt.

I agree about giving 100% canned pumpkin, it's great for both constipation and diarrhea. Just make sure it's pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.

Glad your puppy is doing ok, and yes hydration is very important for his health on multiple levels. Don't even think about worrying about bothering us, we all want to help each other, and we do.
