  • Giving your dog another mixture of mineral oil with food can be dangerous as an overdose of mineral oil can cause constipation and worsen the situation. You should know that mineral oil doesnt always work so do not try to push too hard.

Adding a little mineral oil to the dog's meal can help in these cases.

The proper dosage for a dog is 1 tsp for every 11 lbs (5kg).

However, you should never administer the oil orally; if it ends up in the lungs, which can occur easily, it can cause pneumonia.
