Hi Dear
Thanks for your query,
My suggestion at least to alleviate the symptoms;-
*Use excess Fiber in food like (fruits without peeling, avoid Maida, Excess sugar,excess diluted Honey,plenty of water.
**Try to make once daily particular timings for defecation.(encourage her to strain for some time daily)
*** Use some lubricant jelly locally. (In & around the anus) before straining so that there is should be some stimulation to anal part of the intestine.
Hope you will be in better position.
