Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Hi, and thank you.
I gave him, Pedia Lax liquid glycerin suppository and yes, his stomach is bloated. Not HUGE but he's pretty little and its definitely puffy.

Thank you for the input.
Sorry for the delay.
You can try Dulcolax suppository.
1/2 of the suppository can be given.
If it does not work, I would advise to take him to doctor.
Enema can be needed.
Please give him plenty of fluid too.
I hope this information will be helpful.
