Bisacodyl, perhaps? If so, that stimulant laxative can be administered orally but I would expect considerable gastrointestinal distress to arise in a 6 lb dog. if Shmello ingested this within an hour, inducing emesis would be prudent by dosing him with one measuring teaspoon (5mL) of 3% hydrogen peroxide between his cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, pleae repeat the same dose. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
