Welcome to HA! Carol.

Let's continue discussing constipation in the diet or medical dis-ease folder.

Thanks aruna, I think I used pumpkin with another dog years ago. My pup has finally passed some stool tonight but still seems to want to pass more without success. He has a diet of 1/2 Answers pattie (either pork or beef) raw food diet with an 1/8 tsp Sustenance Herbs Blend which is prebiotic ,probiotic,& digestive enzymes and 1/2 tsp of Omega-3 Pet oil each morning. He has the other 1/2 pattie at night with 1/2 turkey neck. But I am wondering about the bully stick he ate yesterday. He was down near the end and all of a sudden it was gone. He has had these sticks before without issue. Maybe this has bound him up? His energy is good. I took him to a training, agility class for the day today and they said he was fine. I let them know the concern so they kept an eye on him. He did pass a little loose stool but was straining to do more. He was scooting after. I noticed that too, here tonight with the scooting. I gave him only the half pattie tonight. Should I try some pumpkin tomorrow morning alone or add to the pattie?

Once this issue is rectified I have questions about scratching and biting himself. I noticed the scratching since the day I brought him home at 13 weeks. HIs breeder used a Purina kibble which I blended with the new raw food for a week to wean him off it. I have eliminated chicken competely then skipped the 1/2 turkey neck for a two weeks. Stopped some whole milk yogurt I was freezing in a rubber toy/cup because he likes to chew. i was changing the bedding and using free and clear detergent. I am not sure what to try to do next.
