Intestinal blockage with flaky blood after an enema

My neice (17 yrs) has some sort of blockage. She had a small poop 3 days ago that felt like barbed wire and nothing else for a week. Her stomach is poking out in the top by ribs and to the lower right of belly button. We ve tried the prune juice & glyserin sticks. Then two dulcolax and an enema. The enema produced a watery discharge with dark red dried flaky blood . Her mom is still out of town. Is there anything else to try.

Thanks for query,
It happens wherr there is absolute constipation.
If after enema and laxative there is no passing of stool and pain in abdomen and vomiting is there,take him to ER as there is possibility of having chance of obstruction in intestine.Plane X ray will give idea about obstruction.
Ok and bye.
