    Default Constipation- need advice

    Hey guys- so this doesn't pertain to my bully's but to my g/f 3Lb Chihuaha. He seems to be constipated he strains to go- he doesn't go much as he is raw fed but he has been going even less now. I know it's the food it has too much bone, we are switching to a new protein, still raw. Any suggestions to alleviate this?

    I have used buttermilk in the past and it worked plus Ace likes it. Pumpkin good too they say but Ace doesn't care for it

    I feed barf- this batch of food I switched to a commercially packaged brand "bravo" it has too much bone- thank god I'm through this batch of food and I am going back to ground product straight from the processor.

    Really anything that goes down and is pureed well.
    My Usko is a picky eater too and won't eat any veggies if he can recognize them as veggies...I have to puree them and mix with meat and on top of that he also doesn't eat anything smashed so I freeze the mix and chop it to bits....
