I started feeding Cricket Blue wilderness. She loves it! But, its made her constipated. Any suggestions on how I can fix that problem for her. I know she would feel so much better lol.

Are you sure that she is truly constipated and not just going less on better food with less filler ?? You can food some veg or fruit....carrott, blueberry, pumkin,green beans, a bit of apricot might just help. I also through a few kibbles inthe water dish when I think that Rico isn't taking enough water....you could try that to increase her fluids.

She's constipated. It looks like little rabbit poos lol. And she seems to have a harder time going. I wish she would drink more water. I've been giving her a half a cc of aloe vera juice. I'm hoping that will help. She is getting a new can tonight with sweet potatoes mixed in with the food. Maybe that will help also.

I add canned plain pumpkin whenever I have a problem with one of the Chi's getting constipated or a case of diarrhea. It has never not worked :cool:

Can I pick it up no matter the season?

Here the canned pumpkin can always be found in stores, not sure if it's the same
in the States. It does work wonders for both diarrhea and constipation. Little
rabbit poop sounds normal to me though, the better the quality of the kibble
the smaller the poops, since there are less fillers.

They are rock hard, but I did notice this morning that her poo was pure white. I was waiting to pick it up cause it was dark out, and I couldn't see it all. If that's normal, than I won't worry.
