    New Owner (Shit Tzu constipated)

    Hello,

    I recently got a 3 month old Shit Tzu (female puppy) from a breeder and she is often constipated or strains to pass stool. I recognize that this might be due to the change in food from what the breeder fed her to what she's being fed now -- hard food, and it might take some time for her to digestive system to adjust.

    Has anyone else experienced this and have any suggestions on how to remedy the frequent constipation / straining? I'm very concerned for her and the soreness around her butthole.

    How quickly did you change the food over? It should always be done very gradually for them to accept the new food without problems.

    P.S. it's Shih Tzu (pronounced sheetzu). (The mispelling and mispronunciation is a pet peeve of mine as I've met too many people who the breed BECAUSE of that mispronunciation.
