Q. What can I do for my consapated dog

A. if it's just an occasional constipation you can try putting a couple spoons of olive oils in wet food for several days. If she has not passed stools at all for several days you need to get it checked by a vet as she might be blocked, either by very hard stools or by something she ate that caused a blockage.
