I KNOW it is not exactly the same thing, but when my wee one had trouble when she was just born the doctor recommended giving her a tea spoon of olive oil. Apparently it does loosen everything up. Maybe phone your vet and ask them.

weird the information is coming from someone who knows an extreme amount about BD's yet its strange thing to advise, might ring vet tomorrow, although they usually wanna see the pet to make a bit of cash?
