I am sorry to hear about Oreo.

Most baby suppositories are not safe for dogs as they usually contain phosphates. If you tell me the name of the one you have I can look it up, but the only safe enemas to give to dogs contain only DSS as the active ingredients. Most baby suppositories are not safe to give to dogs.

Is she straining to defecate? Is anything at all coming out: mucus, liquid?
