Laxatives

Sheldon has a reliable schedule. Breakfast, poop, dinner, poop.

Last night he didn't do the post-dinner poop. This AM on our walk, he strained and strained to poop, and was crying from pain as he passed a very hard poop (or something worse - I lost it in the weeds).

I emailed the vet to ask if there was an OTC laxative I could prescribe if he misses another typical potty. She suggested miralax, and I picked some up.

Do other people use this, and if so, do you start it the first time a potty is missed?

When our baby girl was spayed last month she had the same problem. We are assuming a combination of anesthesia and pain meds caused it. The breeder suggested Benefiber (unflavored). We mixed it with water and put it in her food. Worked like a charm!
