Why do we need a dog constipation remedy? Have you ever been constipated? I have. I still have vivid memories of:
I remember wishing that this wouldn't happen again, but it always did. But you can stop this from happening to your dog.
Most constipation remedies are stimulants that tell the muscles around the bowels to constrict and cramp to get the stool moving.
Why do this to your dog? There’s a better way.
Are enemas the solution? Do you like getting an enema? Have you ever tried to give a dog an enema. Not fun. And not fun for your dog.
A saline laxative works differently than stimulants. It works by pulling a large amount of water into the small intestine.
Doctors have found that the correct dose of a magnesium laxative has no side effects. Hospitals use it to clean the colon before surgery.
If you give your dog too much, it can cause upset tummy and diarrhea. However, my experience is that you can pretty much control the bowel by adjusting the amount of magnesium.
Stimulant laxatives can be habit forming, so that you can’t have a bowel movement without them, and at the same time they become less and less effective with use.
Not so with magnesium laxatives. Magnesium is non habit forming, but will continue to soften the stool and give easy elimination year after year. The perfect dog constipation remedy.
Two common magnesium laxatives on the market are Milk of Magnesia and Epson Salts. The active ingredient in both is magnesium. But wait. I know of a better way!
By giving your dog a daily magnesium supplement, you prevent constipation instead of constantly trying to cure it.
Most dogs and their owners don’t get enough magnesium. Therefore a daily magnesium supplement can be very beneficial.
Milk of Magnesia and Epson Salts are not designed to be magnesium supplements. They are generally less safe than magnesium supplements, and shouldn't be used on a regular basis.
In 2006 my wife and I discovered a mineral supplement called Ionic Sea Minerals. A teaspoon has just over 100% of the US RDA of Magnesium. Plus it is also quite low sodium.
Imagine our surprise when in a day or two our constipation troubled bowels were experiencing normal, soft elimination. We didn't know it was good for constipation. We were taking it for the trace minerals.
We have taken Ionic Sea Minerals daily ever since. It brought an END to our constipation. Hallelujah! Plus it's magnesium offers numerous other benefits. And yes, it works as a dog constipation remedy, too.
Any laxative, including magnesium laxatives, can cause needed electrolytes to be flushed from the body. Not only does Ionic Sea Minerals help to regulate the bowels, but it constantly replenishes electrolytes.
Some magnesium supplements also contain calcium. Calcium has a binding effect, which can negate the laxative effect of magnesium. Ionic Sea Minerals has almost no calcium. Perhaps that’s one reason it works so well.
There are many tens of thousands of people in the USA alone who take Ionic Sea Minerals as their daily mineral supplement. Many of them take it just to be sure they have daily bowel movements.
According to the book “Constipation Help” by Virginia Sturm,
Good news! If it’s good for us, it’s also an excellent dog constipation remedy!

The daily dose as a dog constipation remedy is the dose same as for people.
If your dog’s bowels get too loose taking the regular dose, back off a little. If they are still a little tight, give a little more.
If a dog has kidney disease, it may not be able to excrete the daily dose of magnesium. Please check with your vet first before you start giving a daily dose to your dog.
Ionic Sea Minerals in your dog’s drinking water may actually improve the taste. But if given in concentrated form, it is bitter. If you want to give your dog a special treat, give it to him in milk, preferably raw milk that has the enzymes to digest the milk.
