I have a 1-year old Maltese that has been having a problem with constipation for about 3 months now. I have slowly removed and added items to her diet, but nothing seems to work. I have been feeding her Bil-Jack dog food with occasional additions of canned Iams chicken and rice. My other dogs do not have this same problem and I just don't know what else to do. I have tried giving her some milk diluted 1-4 with water because I'm also not sure that she is drinking enough. For training snacks I use Pupp eroni or homemade chicken liver treats.

At times I have to use Laxa-Stat to get her going, and I really hate to resort to that. There has to be an answer out there! Before taking her to my vet, I thought I'd try everyone on this forum. Thanks for any suggestions.
