Pumpkin   21  1   

Posted by Lauri (Surprise, AZ) on 07/22/2009

[YEA]  I have a pet sitting business and was looking after a Maine Coon Cat that hadn't had a bowel movement for 3 days. He wasn't eating very much and so didn't go to the bathroom. I gave him 1 teaspoon of pure pumpkin and the very next day he went to the bathroom. I have continued to give it to him and he loves it.

Laurie, how old was the Maincoon? Mine is 17.5 years old. How long before the Maincoon did #2? My cat is having big problems. I've tried pumpkin twice yesterday, once, 1 teaspoon and again .5 teaspoon. Today I gave him another 3/4 teaspoon, always mixed in with his wet food. I've also given him water to keep him hydrated, but so far nothing has happened. Today, I believe is the 4th day that he will not have done #2. Please help! Recommend something. Thanks in advance. C from Mississauga

[YEA]  Canned Pumpkin For Constipated a Dog: Phoebe, my 22 pound 3 year old dachshund basset mix had surgery for a herniated disc and was defecating fine until about a week after her operation. Last night I gave her a tablespoon of pumpkin and one more this morning with her food, and she took care of business about an hour after breakfast. Thanks for your website!

[YEA]  The pumpkin really works! Wow. Thanks so much for your suggestions on using pure pumpkin for clearing up pet constipation issues. My dog was spayed a few days ago, and hasn't been able to go to the bathroom since I brought her home. I fed her 1 tsp. of pumpkin with her dinner, and a few hours later, she was finally able to start going to the bathroom again. Thanks!

[YEA]  Cat Constipation: Hi, I found this wonderful site searching for natural cure/treatment for Sjogrens disease. In cruising the site I found this section on pet treatments. I would like to tell everyone who has cats and feeds them dry food to give them a tablespoon of canned pumpkin 3/4 times a week to prevent feline constipation.NOT pumpkin pie filling-just plain old pumpkin. I lost a cat to this after surgery to remove the blockage. One cannot also feed them milk as this is not digestable.

[YEA]  My dog loves to eat. He suffered constipation the day after our Thanksgiving party. i suspect someone tossed him a bone or beef BBQ. Last night was really hard for him. After reading your web site, i went to the local store and bought a canned pumpkin. This did the trick for him. I gave him 5-7 spoons every 4 hours. The next morning he was jumping and relieved.

Thanks for the information. You help save my wonderful dog and help me a trip to the vet.

[YEA]  The pumpkin method also worked for my golden retriever, Lucy. I think at times she tends to overeat grass. The vet is the one who told me about the pumpkin so I felt it was a safe method. Now I have to really hide it in her food as she will not eat anything remotely related to fruits or vegetables concerning people food. Over her 2-1/2 years she has become a very picky eater for both dog and people food.

[YEA]  MY DOG WAS CONSTIPATED AFTER BEING OUTSIDE FOR AN OUT OF TOWN STAY, WHEN HE IS USE TO STAYING INSIDE. I THINK HE OVERATE THE GRASS. THE PUMPKIN WORKED GREAT, I GAVE HIM A SMALL AMOUNT IN A BOWL AND HE ATE IT FREELY AND THEN WE WENT ON A WALK. DURING THE WALK THE PROBLEM WAS TAKEN CARE OF AFTER TWO DAYS OF NO GOING TO THE BATHROOM. THANKS FOR THE ADVICE...

[YEA]  My kitten was constipated but what worried me most was the gas. My kitten eats raw but I have no clue how to give her pumpkin so this is what I did: I shred the pumpkin and then I put it in the blender with melted butter and obtained a paste. She loves it, I just give her 1 teaspoon a day and after 2 days the pup is too soft so I have to stop it. Anyway, great remedy. Thanks

[YEA]  Wow!! My dog was constipated due to recently being spayed. Gave her a tablespoon of pumpkin when we went to bed, woke up to lots of "treats"! Thanks

[YEA]  Canned pumpkin for dog's constipation. Tried the canned pumpkin and it worked like a charm on my little Chihuahua. Thanks for the information.

[YEA]  I have used Pumpkin for constipation for my dog who suffers from chronic problems daily. Contrary to others beliefs. I give him a tablespoon every day. It works great! I also have another dog that has problems with diarrhea I also give him the same amount as it has fiber and works for both problems. This is a marvelous cure all. I am thirlled that I found this information on this site.

[YEA]  My dog needed to see a Vet for constipation a few years back. He had to stay there for an enema, and it wasn't cheap. Today I recognized the signs and symptoms, Googled it, and found your Pumpkin remedy. He ate it willingly and it did the trick! I'm amazed and thankful.

[YEA]  The most bland pumpkin filling really works to cure both constipation AND diarrhea in a dog any age. If I known that my 10 month old Berner puppy has gotten into something, I will actually give him a heaping tablespoon to push out the junk him faster and the end result being less "mess".

BEWARE, if you feed it to a dog too often it stops being effective.

[YEA]  I have used the pumpkin for constipation in my dog.It really works!I just put the pumpkin in my dogs mouth and keep it closed until he swallows.Because he is not going to eat it if I put it in some other food.But it does work great!! I relly love the Earth Clinic site by the way!!

[YEA]  Pumpkin puree really works to cure constitpation. Thanks! Some antibiotics seem to create constipation and I used a couple teaspoons of pumpkin puree with piecies of cooked chicken to flavor it with each meal during the period of time they were on anitbiotics and my two mini dachsunds ate it with no problem and in a day were back to normal. I have shared this with others and appreciate you and your contributions greatly.
