My puppy ingested a glycerin suppository, will this hurt her?
I am sorry to hear about the suppository.
One suppository should not be a problem. Glycerin is pretty non-toxic. However, we cold run into some stomach or intestinal upset. Vomiting are really bad diarrhea. If this occurs, you will need to consult your primary veterinarian for supportive care. Puppies can quickly get dehydrated from diarrhea, so treatment would be needed if you see these symptoms.
Otherwise, should be fine.
Good Luck
