I have my first aid book here for dogs. I will try to help you. mixing pumpkin into your dogs food; sprinkle Metamucil or any other high fiber diet product on their food or mix it with water and put it in their mouth; However, since this is an emergency situation, do the following: use a warm water sprayer while opening his anal area. Clip his fur first. Use gloves for yourself. Sometimes this can stimulate the progression. If not, youhave to take him to the ER. They have payment plans and you can work something out. Your pets health is most important. I have to tell you the longer you wait, the harder it will become. Call the ER abd ask the vet about enema's or laxatives. They can be dangerous so ask first.
