Question:

: My JRT seems to be constipated a lot. He also seems to avoid trying because of the pain. I don't think his anal glands are the problem, and I've already been adding safflower oil to his Iams.

: Thanks in advance.

Hi Will,

If your dog is having pain whenever he is trying to move his bowels I strongly suggest taking him to your vet. Your dog could have a case of fecal impaction and this is best addressed with your vet. Get your terrier in this week.
