Your pet is constipated when he has trouble pooping (and stool made are dry and difficult) or is not pooping in any way.
If solid waste remains on your pet’s colon too long, all of the moisture inside it’ll be consumed and stools will get dry, tough, and hard to maneuver.
If the problem is left untreated, your pet’s large intestine may actually stretch to the point at which it could no longer perform its job effectively. This can be a chronic condition called megacolon, and is actually more common in cats than dogs. Our purpose is to stop pets from having such chronic and longstanding bowel difficulties.
