  • I would try an ounce or two of apple juice mixed with equal parts water, or prune juice.

  • Apple juice sometimes helps to relieve that. As well try giving her a warm bath to try and release any pent up gas. Gas can be a cause of constipation or painful BM's, as it clogs the works and makes it hard for the movement to pass. As well, if you give her any dairy products you might want to cut back, as dairy can cause constipation.
