I suspect you used a disposable saline enema. They only clear the rectum and cause irritation from the high level of saline. I would use a 1 to 2 quart warm water enema and repeat if necessary unless nothing returns in which case I would get to an ER. Either a combination hot water bottle/douche/enema syringe or a Fountain douche/enema syringe is available at most pharmacies including Walmart.

Add pineapple to your dog's diet. This causes a horrible taste in their poop (like poop tastes good otherwise?.... no clue) but this is a tried and true method many trainers use. It's good for your dog and easy to get without going to a vet. Any kind of pineapple will do..... even canned on cottage cheese with pineapple.

Laxitives AND enema???? Well prunes help. A lot of fruit, and water. Anymore then 6-7 days and I would go to the doctor for some extra strength enema

If even the enema hasn't worked, get an urgent doctors' appointment - this may be a sign of something life-threatening.

There are several ways to suppress your appetite naturally. You do not want to starve yourself as this will tell your body to hold on to the fat already in your body. Natural Appetite Suppressants Pinolenic Acid is a nutrient that reduces your appetite naturally. It also aids in the digestion of dietary fats helping weight loss. Pine nuts contain pinolenic acid, a naturally occurring polyunsaturated fat that actually stimulates two powerful hunger suppressing hormones. Green Tea extract works by promoting thermogenesis, which increases the metabolic rate, inhibiting fat digestion, and boosting your energy. It also increases fat oxidation which helps the body use fat as an energy source. Coleus is an herb that promotes the breakdown of fat in the fat cells and aids in weight loss. Coleus stimulates fat metabolism helping fat loss when dieting. Protein takes longer to digest and does not affect your blood sugar in the way that carbohydrates do which suppresses the appetite by making you feel fuller longer. Guarana has a stimulant affect much like caffeine, it helps to boost energy levels and suppress the appetite. Foods That Suppress Your Appetite Water is an easy way to suppress your appetite. If you drink an 8-ounce glass of water when you first start feeling hungry you should notice that it curbs your appetite. If you just drink a full glass of water and wait 10 minutes you may see that your appetite is either completely gone or dramatically reduced. Green vegetables such as lettuce, cabbage, bokchoy, and other leafy vegetables are very low in calories and they fill your stomach to make you feel full, turning off the hunger signals in your brain. Apples are a great appetite suppressing food because the bulky fiber fills up your stomach and turns off your appetite control hormones before you overeat.
