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.)
