When I put Skyler out this morning to poop, she tried but couldn't go. I've read that you can use canned pumpkin for this, and I'm going to the store this morning anyway and I was going to pick up a can. So I was wondering if any of you have done this. If anyone has, I was wondering how much I should give her. She weighs about 65 pounds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Natdobe, make sure you get the plain canned pumpkin and not the pumpkin PIE filling. Or you can use fresh pumpkin out of the gourd. I'd give no more than a couple tablespoons with her regular meal for a few days. Also, you might try also add a spoonful of olive or canola oil to help things move through more smoothly. Good luck.
Thanks Sooz. Yeah I'm getting the plain canned pumpkin and not the pie filling. I think I will try the olive oil as well. Thank you.
I thought pumpkin was if they had runny poo? Does it work for both, or was I just dreaming. (Would not surprise me a bit, my brain seems to be going through a "shutdown" period.)
ummm pumpkin pie filling works Christmas, Sabot snuck in the kitchen and helped himself to eating about 3/4 of a pumpking pie...IT WORKED!! just thought you all needed a mom wasn't laughing though...she was not very happy with me or Sabot....we were visiting
It works for both doggy diarrhea and constipation. Isn't that great?
Wow! That is great..........I have a couple cans in the pantry......good to know!
I also thought it was only for diarrhea. Learn something new every day!

Hope everything "comes out" ok for Skyler.
Wish we had canned pumpkin here, we only see fresh here at Halloween time then it is gone and i love pumpkin pie but only get to eat it at October time :(
I just wanted to thank everyone and that the pumpkin worked for Skyler.
