Customer Question

My dog is a chihuahua and is 3.5 pounds. I think she is constipated so I just put a children's suppository. But now I'm wondering is she too small for a suppository?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Lola
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lola?
Customer: When she is walking she is keeping her hind legs low. She did poop a little bit before suppository
JA: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No I'll check now . I don't see anything
