15 year old with constipation

Our 15 year old is suffering from constipation. Hey stomach is pretty sensitive to changing foods. I don't know the gentlest thing to give her to make it easier for her to go to the bathroom. Any suggestions?

Especially with a geriatric animal, I'd be checking in with the vet for advice on this.

I was thinking about adding some pumpkin to her diet. Has anyone else tried that?

I agree with Karen. Check with your vet before making any changes. Good Luck
