How do you prevent your dog from getting constipated?

A healthy, balanced diet (ideally AAFCO approved) and a healthy amount of fiber for your dog’s size and breed is one of the best ways to ensure your dog has healthy and regular bowel movements.

Regular exercise is also important for ensuring healthy bowel movements. Based on the exact cause of your dog’s constipation, your vet may recommend you to make a change to your dog’s diet, add supplements to the food or in some cases, prescribe medication to help with the situation.
