My little dog Pomeranian, can only get stimulation if a baby

Customer Question

my little dog Pomeranian, can only get stimulation if a baby suppository is used. she was perfectly normal, and defecating every morning , then slowly became constipated. After inserting a suppository , she passes a normal stool, not too hard , or to soft . She doesn't exercise much , as she is already 10years old , and a real lap dog . what can I do , to improve her peristalsis? I woul be so happy , if I could help her.

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Has your vet evaluated her for possible defecation / constipation issues? Did they recommend the suppository? What was she doing for the constipation?
