Hello - I have a 7yr old mix breed (Chihuahua/Beagle) that has watery stool often. Her weight is @ 45lbs. Is it ok to give her a fiber pill similar to FiberCon to help firm it up?
Thank you.

Thank you.)

Although you could, sometimes giving dogs medicine made for humans can be risky and could make matters worse for your pet. I find that when my dogs have this problem [14 year old Chihuahua and 5 month old Brussels Griffon>, giving them home remedies can settle their stomach. I usually have them fast for 24 hours, to clear their system and then give them a strict water and rice diet for 1-3 days [depending on the severity>. If this happens to your dog often and doesn't stop after a while, I would suggest bringing them to their veterinarian because this could be a more serious problem for your dog.
