Miralax is a laxative that can primarily treat constipation in dogs. It’s actually the brand name of a medicine also known by the generic name polyethylene glycol 3350.
The medication works on a short-term basis by helping the dog’s stools retain more water, which in turn makes them easier to pass
Side Effects Of Miralax For Dogs
Side effects of Miralax are uncommon in dogs, but sometimes nausea, vomiting, and general lethargy can occur.
In general, if you notice any sort of allergic reaction, including hives, swelling, or difficulty breathing when your dog takes any kind of medicine, make sure to contact your veterinarian immediately.
If you suspect your dog took too much of the medication and might be suffering from an overdose, contact an emergency veterinarian right away. An overdose could possibly lead to pancreatitis.
